I took your exam and I believe a particular item is not valid. Can I request evaluation of that question?

Tenable constantly reviews exam questions to ensure relevance, technical accuracy and absence of ambiguity. If you believe a particular item is not valid, you may request an evaluation of that item within 4 (four) calendar days of taking an exam.

An exam development staff member will review your challenge and submit a response within 10 (ten) business days of the submission. The response will include either a result of the evaluation or, in the event more time is needed for evaluation, an estimate of when you can expect a decision. Once a decision has been made, it will be regarded as final and no further evaluation will occur.

To protect exam integrity, Tenable will not provide information on whether your answer was correct, the rationale for the decision or how your performance on that item may have affected your final score.

To submit an exam item challenge, please use the form here within 4 (four) calendar days of taking an exam.
