Partnering organizations such as state CTSO associations sometimes contract with MBA Research to develop additional exams to specific specifications. Some of the most common of these custom exams focus on economics and mathematics in business. Past versions of these tests are available for purchase to use as practice for CTSO objective exams.
- Economics Applications in Business. This exam is based on the economics instructional area (from within the Business Administration core) across all curriculum planning levels. There are a total of 54 economics performance indicators. Therefore, there are typically 1 or 2 items for each.
- Math Applications in Business. This exam is very general. It includes a wide range of computational math problems and math-based questions drawn from 68 performance indicators. These indicators are pulled from the Business Administration core and the cluster cores across all six curriculum planning levels. Items represent the math “component” of performance indicators that are not necessarily specific to a math problem.
