Computer Based Testing coming in 2023!

The ASBOG® Fundamentals of Geology (FG) and Practice of Geology (PG) examinations will be changed from paper and pencil to computer-based format starting with Spring 2023 exam administrations. All paper and pencil examinations will be completed during the October 2022 administration.

The FG and PG examinations will be given over a one-day period, on the third Friday in March and the first Friday in October. ASBOG® is allowing candidates to sign up for the FG and/or PG during two different testing time windows. Both the FG and PG will be offered in the 8am to 12pm and 1pm to 5pm time slots. Candidates taking the examinations will be able to signup and take the exams at any of ~575 testing facilities throughout the contiguous US, Puerto Rico, and Hawaii. For more information regarding the testing sites, please go to our CBT information

2022 Task Analysis Survey!

A task analysis survey (TAS) is a psychometric study designed to identify the tasks most commonly performed by geologic professionals and the underlying knowledge needed to perform these tasks. The results of a TAS form the basis for test blueprints that define the scope and content of the licensure examinations. ASBOG® completed the last TAS in 2015.

Participation in the TAS by licensed geologists and academicians is critical to ensure ASBOG® obtains data representative of geologic practice throughout the United States. Individual state licensure boards will assist ASBOG® in getting the survey invitations to licensed geologists and academicians. Participation in the ASBOG® task analysis survey as a great way to give back to the profession.
