Certified Experience Designer (CXD) Exam

Welcome to CXD Certification Exam page!

About the Exam

  • You will have 2 hours to complete the exam.
  • The exam consists of:
  • Written answers that you can type directly into the exam
  • The creation of assets like sketches, diagrams, wireframes, or timeline schedules
  • You may use the tool of your choice to create these assets outside of the learning platform
  • You will then upload them into the exam as a digital file.
    • If you create these manually on paper, you could scan or photograph the pages (smartphone or webcam) and upload the photos.
    • If all else fails, you may email the assets to hello@experiencethinkers.com 
  • You are required to be on-camera via Zoom for the entire duration of your exam. If you don't have a web camera, we can arrange a private screen-share exam.
  • The exam is open-book, but there is NO communicating with anyone in your physical space or any person online.
  • You may take breaks as needed; please alert the proctor.
