All The Strategy Institute exams are computer-based and can be taken at home or in your office in the private mode, after getting your computer machine and the exam environment ExamStrong™-verified prior to taking the exam. Examinees generally marking 65% of their answers correct qualify for The Strategy Institute award. However, since a complex multi-variable algorithm is used to take certification decisions to nullify geographic and other environmental factors with potential to skew performance, the qualifying benchmark should not be expected to stay pegged exactly to 65%.
