Congratulations to all designers who passed the Fall 2022 NCIDQ Exams!
Of all test takers, 426 became newly certified designers — and over 289 were Qpractice members.
That's more than two-thirds!
So what's the NCIDQ Exam Pass Rate?
For all test-takers, the pass rates for each exam are released twice per year for the previous administration and the list of new NCIDQ Certificate holders.
For Fall 2022, at least 68% of the new NCIDQ Certificate holders were Qpractice members! This is based on a complete name match with the member's state or province.
This includes all who had purchased one or more subscriptions, courses, or workshops for their NCIDQ Exam prep for one, two, or all three of their exams!
As the Spring Exam season is underway, we're always continuing to update and add even more to our subscription to help you pass the NCIDQ Exams!
What's New at Qpractice?
We update our practice tests and quizzes each season to match the NCIDQ Exam Blueprints. This Spring 2023, we'll introduce more new Practicum case study questions in our live workshop.
Our live workshops have had an excellent response for the last few years. When we used CIDQ's practice tests for our workshops in the past, and each workshop previously sold for $169 – $199.
Now we create unique quizzes for you to take before the live workshop, with no additional purchase needed. Your subscription now includes all of this for only $159/month.
We cover test-taking strategy and walk through each question and answer with the following:
- Tips on how to avoid common mistakes
- How to choose when you don't know the answer
- Explanations for each correct answer
- The WHY and sourcing behind the correct answer
The workshops are offered live with audience Q&A only at select times each season, and recordings are available to you 24/7 along with your active Qpractice subscription.
We recommend you take your quiz before the live event, but your Qpractice monthly plan includes unlimited access to our online practice tests and quizzes.
Join us this year for a variety of live CEU events. We've selected content that not only covers relevant exam topics, but you can earn continuing education credit required by many professional organizations and by CIDQ to maintain your certificate.
See our schedule for the upcoming events to sign up — They're free!
Why We Offer All Access Courses
As a Premium Access member, you can access courses for all three exams in one membership. This helps you make the most of the topical overlap between them. Keep in mind that all of the Practicum topics overlap with either IDFX or IDPX.
- 24 of 38 PRAC knowledge statements overlap with IDFX
- 14 of the 38 PRAC knowledge statements overlap with IDPX
Much of the content we're reviewing is essentially the same as far as studying goes, yet the major difference is with the type or format of questions and the level of detail and application.
We show you exactly how this applies in each lesson at the bottom, along with relevant work experience and your reading review.
Study With Our Team of Certified Interior Designers
By studying together, we can have more meaningful and helpful discussions in the study group led by our team of NCIDQ Certified interior designers. We also cover a variety of member questions for each exam during live office hours. This helps us benefit from the group's collective wisdom so that we can help each other.
We've designed the structure to accommodate everyone, whether:
- you're just taking one exam and want to purchase exam season access
- you're planning on taking two or more exams over the next year, or
- you plan to study for both the spring and fall exams
