ISTQB CTFL (Foundation Level) certification is a pre-requisite for this certification.
Here are some information about the exam format:
- Foundation Level Exam contains 40 multiple choice questions.
- Pass mark is 65%, 26 or more points
- Examination length is 1 hour / 60 minutes.
- Learning objectives:
— Level 1: Remember (K1)
The candidate will recognize, remember and recall a term or concept.
— Level 2: Understand (K2)
The candidate can select the reasons or explanations for statements related to the topic, and can summarize, differentiate, classify and give examples for facts (e.g., compare terms), the testing concepts, test procedures (explaining the sequence of tasks).
— Level 3: Apply (K3)
The candidate can select the correct application of a concept or technique and apply it to a given context. K3 is normally applicable to procedural knowledge. There is no creative act involved like evaluating a software application, or creating a model for a given software program. When we have a given model and cover in the syllabus the procedural steps to create test cases from a model, then it is K3.
— Level 4: Analyze (K4)
The candidate can separate information related to a procedure or technique into its constituent parts for better understanding, and can distinguish between facts and inferences. Typical application is to analyze a document, software, project situation and propose appropriate actions to solve a problem or task.
