PMI India
Practitioner of the Year Award



PMI India Best Project of the Year Award


PMI’s new knowledge assessments are a way you can determine your job knowledge, what skills or knowledge you lack, and where you need training. This evaluation tool is now available at three career levels:


• The Project Management Knowledge Assessment which is based on A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide)—Fourth Edition.
The Program Management Knowledge Assessment, based on The Standard for Program Management—Second Edition.
• The Portfolio Management Knowledge Assessment, based on The Standard for Portfolio Management—Second Edition.


Each online assessment is US $35 per person and consists of 100 multiple-choice questions grouped by categories relevant to each standard. For example, the Project Management Knowledge Assessment categories include questions from the following process groups: Initiating, Planning, Executing, Monitoring and Controlling, Closing, Professional Responsibility, and Project Integration Management.


At the conclusion of each assessment, individuals receive a personalized score report based on the number of correct answers in each category. The final report includes an overall score and a score for each performance section. For the practitioners’ managers, the assessment tool allows aggregation of individual scores. Organizations can evaluate their overall project management knowledge and maturity by viewing a comprehensive report.


Organizational Benefits
PMI’s knowledge assessments can help your organization deliver a career path for project management practitioners by evaluating their current and relevant knowledge of project management standards and establishing a baseline. The assessments also assist in identifying organization-wide training needs as well as providing guidance in building focused training curriculums for employees.


Organizations that offer project management practitioners a defined career path are often more successful at retaining their project management talent. However, according to PMI research, only 30 percent of organizations worldwide have a formal project management career path.


Knowledge assessments can also help an organization’s project management staff prepare for a credential examination. (However, please note that success in these knowledge assessments is not indicative of success in any of PMI’s credential examinations.)
