What to Expect with Discrete Option Multiple Choice (DOMC) exams:

This exam uses the DOMC question format. It is quite different than traditional multiple choice exams. It is designed to increase exam fairness, to protect exam integrity, your exam scores and your time.

How is DOMC different?

  • Instead of presenting all the answer options together at one time, DOMC questions present answer options one at a time, at random
  • When an answer option is presented, you select either Yes or No to indicate if the option is correct or not. This process repeats until the question concludes
  • You may see more than one correct option
  • You may receive as few as one option for each test question or several options
  • Once you move forward, you may not go back and change your response to a previous option

We created an HPE sample test to help you practice using this DOMC test format. During registration, you will be asked to confirm that you have completed the HPE DOMC sample test and understand how this exam will perform.
