Taking the Exam
An IACA Certification Application has been designed and a draft was made available during the
2003 IACA Conference. Certification exams will be offered two (2) times during the first year
(2004) of the program in conjunction with state and regional association conferences and at the
2004 IACA Conference in Seattle, WA. Interested associations should contact the Certification
Committee Chairperson, Samantha Gwinn. Re-tests within the first 12 months must be
scheduled at the time and location advertised or offered by the IACA.
The exam will be offered electronically via E-college Internet software (http://oec.ecollege.com).
The Certification Commission will be responsible for reviewing each application and calculating
a score according to the point system described above. Applicants will then be notified as to their
eligibility to sit for the exam. The initial Commission is actually the Test Oversight Committee
(TOC), which consists of accomplished, experienced IACA members who fully support the
certification process, but who have no desire to be IACA Certified and have waived their right to
do so. These members have agreed not to seek certification in an effort to lend their time and
wisdom to the process, and to minimize any possible conflicts of interest with their participation.
Once they review the first group of applications and exams, and once a significant number of
members have been certified, a Certification Commission will be created. This Commission will
be made up of five IACA certified analysts, and they will assume the duties of the TOC some
time in late 2004.
The TOC, and then the Certification Commission, will be responsible for reviewing and scoring
each application, and for notifying each applicant whether he/she qualifies to sit for the exam.
They will schedule each exam and review the scores of each test, which will be electronically
scored by E-college. They will then notify the applicant regarding the exam results, including
the final score, and provide either the IACA Letter of Certification upon success, or information
on any areas of deficiency upon failure. An applicant can appeal a negative decision by the
Commission to the IACA President, who will then take the appeal to the IACA Executive Board
for final decision.
An E-college logon and password will be provided to the person proctoring the exam at each
site, who will also be responsible for test monitoring. The proctor cannot offer any assistance to
the applicants, and is directed not to answer any questions during the exam. No outside materials
can be brought into the exam, as it is a closed-book format. Any questions or concerns can be
directed to the Certification Committee (currently the TOC) in writing (e-mail or regular mail),
who will review the complaint and reply to the applicant within 30 days of receipt of the letter.
Each candidate will be given four (4) hours to complete the exam. It is estimated that a well-
prepared individual will be able to complete the exam in 2 to 2.5 hours. The exam will include
multiple-choice, true-false, fill-in-the-blank and short answer questions, all designed to be
objective in nature. The candidate can expect to make computations on scratch paper, use
spreadsheet software, a calculator, and be prepared to read a number of documents (e.g., police
reports, narratives and short essays) and respond to related questions. Each exam will be made
up of 200 questions – ten (10) randomly selected questions from each of the 20 skill set areas
that were identified by the membership and then refined by the Certification Committee. Seven
out of ten questions (70%) in each module must be answered correctly to receive a passing score.
A list of training courses (provided by IACA and outside groups), and a bibliography will be
offered to assist each interested applicant in preparing for the examination and mastering the skill
In order to pass the exam, an applicant must receive a score of 70% on each of the 20 skill set
modules, and a total passing score of 70%. If the tester does not pass, he/she must take the entire
exam again, although he/she will be notified on which skills there is a deficiency. The applicant
will then be given direction regarding where to turn to improve on these deficiencies. The IACA
will provide a list of courses offered (by IACA and outside groups), and a bibliography including
sources of information for all skills sets.
The fee for taking the exam has been set at $150 each time. In the event of failure on the first

attempt, the first retake of the exam will cost $25 to cover administrative costs only. This re-test
must be taken within one year of the original test date. Subsequent re-tests will require payment
of the full $150 fee. The maximum number of times one can take the exam is four (4) – one
initial attempt, one re-test within the first 12 months, and once per year thereafter, up to a total of
The $150 cost will go into the IACA general fund, allowing for the continuation of the
certification program, the IACA Training Series and the IACA Handbook. This income will also
help to cover costs related to face-to-face meetings for committee members and/or board
members. The Certification Committee also recommends the initiation of a scholarship process,
which enables members to apply for funds to attend training courses and/or conferences. We
would like the IACA board to consider this as part of their next three-year plan.
In the future (2005 and beyond), the IACA will allow for the examination to be offered
electronically via the web, but proctored by an objective party or entity. It is possible that
Sylvan or Human Resources Departments will be tasked with monitoring the exam, if no
alternatives can be found.
Once all the steps are completed, the applicant will earn the title of Certified Law Enforcement
Analyst (CLEA), and will receive a framed certificate and a lapel pin.
Validity of the Exam
This is something the Certification Committee and the Test Oversight Committee are in the
process of resolving, in order to design an examination that is as fair and reasonable as possible.
The Test Oversight Committee has collected twenty (20) questions from each of the Skill Set
Instructors/Authors selected by the independent Professional Training Series/Handbook
Selection Committee, resulting in a bank of 400 questions. Questions from the original
certification exam, compiled by the previous Certification Committee, were also reviewed and
included where they were determined to be applicable. Questions selected for the exam had
multiple sources and were based on well-established, professional techniques. No proprietary
sources were used as a basis for the test questions, and every effort was made to identify multiple
sources for any given question. The IACA Handbook and Training Series is not the only place
these knowledge, skills and abilities can be found. Study guides, bibliographies, recommended
training courses and college certificate and degree programs were considered when selecting
The entire bank of questions is being reviewed by the Test Oversight Committee for fairness and
design objectivity, based on the research principles applicable to closed-ended and open-ended
questions. The entire bank of questions will also be given to a “panel of experts” (senior
analysts, retired analysts, crime analysis consultants and college professors with areas of
expertise in criminology, criminal justice, research methods and crime analysis). Each expert
will be asked to take the exam, allowing for each question to be assessed for internal and external
validity issues such as double-barreledness, response-exclusivity, ambiguity, clarity, etc.
Problematic questions will either be modified or eliminated from the bank of questions
The final bank of 400 questions will be equally divided across each skill set area to make up
eight (8) different 50-question practice exams, each question randomly assigned. Every IACA
member will soon be given the opportunity to take the practice exam on the IACA website,
providing them the opportunity to see how the exam looks and feels – hopefully reducing
apprehension and concern prior to taking the actual certification exam. This process was
instituted to test each question for external validity; it would be expected that more experienced
and/or more educated members would score higher on the exam (vice-versa for less work and/or
educational experience). Each question will be assessed for objectivity, and any questions that
were overwhelmingly answered incorrectly will be modified or eliminated.
