Comp-XM®, The Business Competency Exam, is an assessment tool to determine and demonstrate what participants have learned though the Capsim® business simulation experience. Comp-XM® provides Assurance of Learning to support a wide range of stated learning goals.
The unique two-part Comp-XM® examination process uses a business simulation similar in appearance and structure to Foundation® and Capstone®, followed by a series of board query questions that are specific to the results of the answers provided in the prior simulation rounds.
Comp-XM® can be used at the end of a course for assurance of learning purposes, or earlier, to measure content retention.

Accrediting agencies and organizations such as the AACSB, ACBSP and IACBE require universities to assure their business students graduate with competencies in stated Assurance of Learning areas. The accreditation process is comprehensive and demanding. Comp-XM® helps universities achieve this objective.
