POST has provided presenters of its certified basic courses with access to Internet-based testing software, known as the Testing Management and Assessment System (TMAS). This system supports online testing only and is used to deliver and score comprehensive tests.

User Authorization

Each presenter is authorized to have up to two (2) local TMAS course managers. If additional course managers are required, a written request must be made, with justification, to the TMAS Helpdesk. Each course manager must meet the following criteria: 

  1. Be designated by the presenter to use TMAS; 
  2. Cannot be the instructor of a learning domain evaluated by a comprehensive test;
  3. Have a signed POST Test Use and Security Agreement Acknowledgement Form on file; and 
  4. Have completed POST-provided TMAS training.

Cut-Off Scores

The current passing standard (cut-off score) for each required comprehensive test is available via the TMAS system.

Questions about the passing scores should be directed to the TMAS Helpdesk.
