Thank you for your interest in submitting a potential APR Examination question.

In order to keep the exam current, new questions need to be added, and old questions need to be removed. PR practitioners can contribute questions for potential inclusion on the exam. This process is called item-writing, and the Universal Accreditation Board (UAB) solicits questions in an on-going basis. There are established guidelines for item writing to assist in this process. These guidelines follow industry standards. Each question on our exam also requires two references, one of which must be an academic citation from one of the textbooks on our bookshelf. If you cannot provide an academic citation, the workgroup will attempt to cite a source, but please understand that may reduce the chance that your question will be considered. Before you submit a question, please be sure to review the item-writing guidelines and list of KSAs, found online at Thank you.
