What is on the SHRM CP: Detailed Breakdown

The SHRM CP is a computer-based multiple-choice exam featuring 160 questions to be answered during a four-hour testing period. It covers content that all Human Resources professionals should know to find success long-term. The material covers leadership, business, interpersonal skills, the management of employees, organization, and workplace best practices.

Our world-class practice certification tests are designed to give you the knowledge you need to pass your SHRM Certified Professional certification exam. We do this by delivering realistic practice tests that thoroughly prepare you for the SHRM Certified Professional exam. Taking our SHRM Certified Professional practice tests will give you the psychological advantage needed to walk into your test day with confidence.

To pass the SHRM Certified Professional test you need a score of 200.

How is the SHRM CP Scored?

The SHRM CP certification exam is scored based on passing scores set by a panel of experienced Human Resources professionals. They evaluate each new version of the test and assign a minimum score threshold that examinees must meet in order to pass.

A person's raw score will reflect the number of questions they get right out of the 130 test items that count towards the overall score. Upon reporting the results to examinees, the SHRM converts the raw score to a scaled score from 120-200 points. While it may sound confusing, this process helps eliminate biases and ensure fair scoring across test versions.

While it can be hard to know what precise score to shoot for when going through SHRM CP exam prep, understanding the weight of each content category can help. For instance, 18.5 percent of questions of the SHRM CP are dedicated to interpersonal relationships. By spending the same percentage of your exam prep time devoted to that category, you can take a balanced approach to studying. Of course, adding in a few SHRM practice tests to your routine can help maintain that balance.

What to Expect After the Test.

After your SHRM CP, you can expect to learn of the results within five to six weeks. Depending on your performance, you may be able to negotiate a promotion or raise based on your new SHRM CP certification. Careers in Human Resources can be taken to new heights once you've taken and passed this exam.

Unfortunately, not everyone passes the SHRM CP on their first attempt. There are no limits on the number of times you can retake the test, but given how expensive registration fees are, you'll want to be efficient with your exam prep efforts. By incorporating practice tests into your routine, you'll know exactly wh

    6. What are the SHRM exams?

    You have made the decision to pursue SHRM certification. Which exam should you take? What do the exams entail?

    What is the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM)?

    The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) is a world-wide professional society that has been the leading provider of resources to meet the needs of HR professionals and promoting the advancement of the management of human resources. The SHRM awards certificates for the Certified Professional (SHRM-CP) and the Senior Certified Professional (SHRM-SCP). Both exams have eligibility requirements that include specific education and work experience criteria. These requirements can be found by visiting www.shrm.org.

    ven if you meet the requirements for the SHRM-SCP exam, the SHRM-CP may be your best option depending on your current professional needs. The SHRM-CP is tailored for the HR professional that is involved in an operational role, while the SHRM-SCP fits the HR professional that is in a more strategic role. The SHRM Body of Competency and Knowledge (SHRM BoCK) can be helpful in deciding which exam best fits your professional needs. It describes behavioral competencies and HR knowledge needed to effectively perform both operational and strategic roles. You will find it by visiting www.shrm.org.

    The SHRM-CP measures the level of competency and knowledge expected of early to mid-level HR professionals. The SHRM-SCP measures the level of competency and knowledge of a senior level HR professional. Both exams are computer-based. Four hours are allotted for the 160 multiple-choice questions. About 60% of the questions involve HR-specific knowledge with the other 40% being scenario-based in which application and decision-making skills are assessed. Credit is given for correct answers only. While more than one answer might address an issue presented in the situational judgment portion, only the best possible response will be awarded credit for being correct. The exams both include 30 field-test questions that do not count toward your score. A provisional pass/did not pass result is issued before leaving the testing center.
