Course Questions

DataManagementU presents courses through a Learning Management System (LMS). The courses run as presentations in a web-browser. This approach allows the student to pause, resume, and start-over at any point during the course. The LMS is compatible with any computer platform and browser, and is accessible via mobile and tablet platforms as well.

Each course is available to the student for a period of weeks, depending on the course, starting with the date you access it for the first time. Should a course expire, an extension may be granted for very special circumstances by writing to support@datamanagementeducation.com

Please, click on the LMS Login link in the upper left part of your screen.  Alternatively, you can type the following URL directly in your browser: http://datamanagementu.talentlms.com

Each student receives periodic email notices concerning the remaining time for course completion.  All students should complete each course in the allotted time.  If a very special situation arises, please contact support@datamanagmenteducation.com to discuss an extension.

The LMS supports all viewing platforms, including tablets and mobile devices.  If you have problems or questions, please email our support department at support@datamanagementeducation.com

DataManagementU courses target the professional data management business and technical communities, including those who are interested in preparing for taking the examinations to become a Certified Data Management Professional® (CDMP®) through DAMA International.  The product page for each course describes the target audience and prerequisite information and provides a course outline.

No. The course is designed to be taken over a period of weeks.  You may close out the presentation and return to it later.  The LMS will track your progress so that you may resume where you left off, even resuming from a different computer.  Note, however, when taking a DataManagementU exam, you may not pause or resume the module.  Exams must be taken from beginning to end in one sitting.

DataManagementU, DAMACDMP.com, DataManagementEducation.com and its affiliates do not have any connection with the Certified Data Management Professional® (CDMP®) examination process through DAMA International.  The exam at the end of the course is for preparation purposes only and is NOT intended to replace the CDMP® examination process.  All CDMP® exams are taken directly through DAMA International – http://www.dama.org

DataManagementU recommends that a student use a notebook to take notes instead of printing the course slides, since each student learns, studies, and takes notes differently.  After having completed the course, a student learner can download the slides and readings for their own future reference.

You can join our LinkedIn and Facebook groups, DataManagementU.  These groups provide a forum for peer networking and discussion of key issues relevant to data management.  We have a broad group membership including industry experts, influencers, practitioners, and associates in various enterprise data management disciplines.

DataManagementU courses are designed to be self-paced courses.  This means that the course is delivered to the student to be completed without the guidance of an instructor so the student can proceed at his or her own pace as long as the final deadline is met.  All the course materials have been developed so the student can learn from the narrated slides, the assigned readings, and from completing the module / chapter exercises fully.

Upon purchasing a course, you should receive a credit card transaction receipt within 10 minutes at the address you registered with DataManagementEducation.com's online store.  An enrollment notification along with detailed course access information and other useful tips will arrive in a separate email message.  If you have not received it within 24 hours of your purchase, please first check your junk-mail or spam in-box in case the message(s) was filtered.  If the messages are still not found, send an e-mail to us at support@datamanagementeducation.com   We will verify the transaction and re-send the enrollment.

Not at this time.  All DataManagementU courses and materials are in English.

DataManagementU’s courses qualify for CPE / Professional Development Unit (PDU) credits.  We can provide a letter confirming successful completion of courses, and a confirmation of the final exam’s score.  If your designating organization has any specific CPE reporting requirements please let us know and we will address them in the letter.  Please contact customer support at support@datamanagementeducation.com for more information.

Exam Questions

The content of the final exams varies, depending on the course.  The final exams are timed and cannot be paused, so you must complete each exam in a single sitting.

You can review and change your answers at any time until you submit the entire exam at the end of the session, before the end of the exam time.  Please make sure that you check that **all questions** have been answered before clicking "submit all."

No.  There are five types of questions:

- True/False. Choose whether a statement is true or false.
- Multiple Choice. Select one answer from the list of choices.
- Multiple Responses. Check all correct answers from the list of choices.
- Matching Drag & Drop. Match each item in the list on the right to an item in the list on the left by dragging and attaching them together.
- Sequence Drag & Drop. Order items (for instance, steps in a procedure) according to specific criteria by dragging them up or down the list.

Yes.  There are three levels of difficulty following educational best practices:

    Level 1.  Recognition.  Test ability to retrieve, recognize, and remember concepts and terminology.

    Level 2.  Understanding.  Test ability to compare, contrast, describe, interpret, classify, and explain terms, concepts, or ideas.

    Level 3.  Application.  Test ability to combine different concepts and ideas and apply them to solve problems or produce results.

No. The questions for each exam are selected randomly from a large test bank. However, the selection program ensures that every student gets the same number of questions.

The exams are graded by a program as part of the LMS. No points are awarded for skipping a question.

The passing grade is 70% for the final exam in each DataManagementU course.

Each module (chapter) has ending quizzes (assessments) that serve to test the student’s grasp of the information presented in that module.  You can take the module (chapter) ending quizzes as many times as you like before attempting the final exam.  In addition, completing the assignment at the end of each module (chapter) reinforces the learning experience, and helps with passing the final exam. 

The final exam is offered once, and there is no opportunity to re-take the final exam.

You will receive confirmation of your final exam results soon after completing the exam, with the final score displayed. In addition, you will receive an email message with confirmation of your results, within a few days of the completion of the course.

Once you pass the exam, you will receive a Certificate of Completion documenting that you have completed the course successfully. For best results when printing out your certificate change image orientation to landscape, set margins to zero, and set output size to "same as paper size" or "fit screen."

Do not be discouraged. The courses cover much material and are designed to be challenging. This way, passing the exam is a true indication of significant mastery of the subject. Since DataManagementU courses are designed to educate a data management professional so they can advance in their field, it is important that each student complete all the course modules (chapters), take all the chapter quizzes, and complete all the assignments before attempting the course’s final exam. Doing all this will help solidify the learning. If a student registers for one of the CDMP® exam preparation courses, the course is designed prepare a candidate to take the Certified Data Management Professional® (CDMP®) examinations, offered by DAMA International, as well as educate them in the concepts and best practices in data management.

The courses and exams use a state-of-the-art Learning Management System (LMS).  TalentLMS enables a student to use their tablet, smartphone, or computer and access their course without interruption.  Applications are available in the Apple (iOS) App Store, or Android App Store.

The ability to continue learning while not connected to the internet is one of the flagship features of the mobile app.  It’s easy too — a student just selects and downloads the course, and continues with training while on the subway, on a plane, or a cabin in the woods.  Progress will be synchronized with the TalentLMS cloud servers the moment the student returns online.
