According to the Research Administrators Certification Council, the designation of Certified Research Administrator (CRA) means that an individual has met the requirements of the Research Administrators Certification Council's eligibility requirements and has demonstrated a level of knowledge necessary for a person to be a professional research or sponsored programs administrator.

Exam candidates would have to pass the written examination developed by the Council and administered in the form of computer testing by the Professional Testing Corporation. The multiple choice based examination would test a broad base of fundamental information required to meet the demands and responsibilities of the profession. The examination is based on the Council’s comprehensive BOK, which includes:

The CRA exam attempts to assess the knowledge of academic researchers via MC questions - this can become a problem as practical researchers are not always skillful in taking MC tests. ALSO, you must understand that the CRA exam is not only about research skills. It is about the overall administration and management of the entire research effort. Therefore, a lot of “business management” kinds of concept are tested. Having rich academic research background is not enough – you have to be a good administrator and manager as well.

ExamFOCUS Study Notes build a solid focus while revisiting key examination topics. Whether you are just starting to study, cramming at the last minute, or simply looking to refresh, this could prove to be a lifesaver! As an effective learning aid implemented in the format of study notes, the ExamFOCUS CRA Study Notes package is designed to present information in an easy-to-understand, conversational format. Notes are well-written, technically accurate and completely representative of the key information covered by the exam.

The CRA exam is comprehensive. One has to go through a lot of readings for learning the various exam topics. However, most readings do not come with any practice questions as they were never intended for exam prep use right from the beginning.

Intensive practice and review can focus your attention to your weak areas. This is where we fill the gap - you may think of our ExamREADINESS Testprep product as the unofficial supplement to the various exam readings, or you may view it as a standalone module with a focus on building up your exam readiness, THROUGH 240 UNIQUE PRACTICE QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS.

This practice review product focuses on the topics of  Grant & Award Administration, Contract Administration, Purchasing, Costing, Laws & Regulations, and Budget Development.

Think the real exam is tough? Wait until you see this CRA ExamREADINESS module. The ExamREADINESS CRA questions are designed to drill you through the research admin contents topic by topic. They are well-written, technically accurate and completely representative of the kind of challenge you are about to face when preparing for the CRA exam. If you can handle the ExamREADINESS questions, you will have no problem with the real exam.
