RESNET QAD/Instructor Test Categories The RESNET QAD/Instructor Test’s questions are divided into the key categories of building science and home energy ratings. The following are the categories of the test questions and the percentage of questions in each category that are contained in the test: General 7% Health and Safety 10% Building Science Topics 10% Insulation 10% Heating and Cooling Systems 10% Domestic Water Heating Systems 7% Appliances and Lighting 7% Air Leakage 11% Conditioned Air Distribution Systems 10% Ventilation 8% RESNET Rating System 10% How the RESNET QAD/Instructor Test Was Developed Early in the process, every item in RESNET’s question bank was edited and reviewed by volunteer Subject Matter Experts (SME) with the guidance of a psychometric consultant. This step alone Improved the test by simply eliminating poorly worded question stems and using plausible-but-definitely-not-correct distractors. Once the item bank was updated with new and improved questions, RESNET’s psychometric consultant created two new fixed-form exams. This is a change from the previous test methodology, in which question items were randomly assigned (weighted by category) from a database. The primary reason for moving away from this method is that with a random collection of questions, one Candidate may draw a more difficult set of questions than another. For the new test, passing scores were determined through a Pass Point Study consistent with procedures adopted in the Standards for Educational and Psychological Testing (AERA, APA, NCME, 1999) and with standards published by the National Organization for Competency Assurance (NOCA). With training and guidance from the psychometric consultant, volunteer SMEs applied the Modified-Angoff procedure to rate the difficulty of every item in the bank by responding to the following question: “What percentage of candidates who are just barely qualified for certification will answer this item correctly?” After statistical analysis of the SME responses, the passing score of 80 was recommended by the psychometric consultant for both test forms. RESNET QAD/Instructor Test Study Guide Outline All of the questions in the national rater test were supported by publications and web sites. The following are source documents for the national rater test: Residential Energy, John Krigger ACCA Standard 12 Minneapolis Duct Blaster and Blower Door Manuals, The Energy Conservatory or Retrotec Blower Door and Duct Testing Manuals RESNET website, especially the links to: Energy code compliance RESNET Mortgage Industry National Home Energy Rating Standards ANSI/RESNET/ICC Standard 301-2014 + Addenda ANSI/RESNET/ICC Standard 380-2016 + Addenda Formal Technical Interpretations Handbook of Fundamentals, ASHRAE Manual J, Air Conditioning Contractors of America (ACCA) Please remember, this is a national test and may cover topics that are not addressed in detail in a particular state’s program.
