ARDMS examination questions — we call them items — are the foundation of our organization. Since 1975, volunteers have played a vital role in writing them.
The importance of high-quality, relevant items cannot be stressed enough. They ensure that ARDMS examinations evaluate candidates accurately and fairly on the most current and relevant standards in sonography, thereby maintaining the integrity and credibility of our Registrants’ certification.
In general, we require our writers to be ARDMS Registrants in good standing and holding the ARDMS credential in the specialty in which they are writing. Selected volunteer Item Writers are invited to participate in writing projects for which they are qualified.
As an Item Writer, you will need a computer, reference materials and the patience it takes to write well-crafted items of high quality. No previous writing experience is necessary as you will be trained and provided with an online Mentor who will guide you through your first writing project.
