The SAP Crowdsourced Certification Questions Rewards Program is our crowd sourcing initiative aimed at involving the wider community of SAP experts especially those outside the organization in the certification process. By writing items (questions and answers), that end up in our certification exams, SAP Certification ensures that it is able to tap into the knowledge base of its internal and external community of experts and continue to provide skills validation. With your help, the SAP Crowdsourced Certification Questions will ensure that certifications remain relevant and continue to confirm that candidates have the right skills needed for the job.
As very passionate members of the SAP ecosystem, we have developed a rewards system to show we appreciate your effort and to ensure that you are recognized throughout the SAP community. Item writers are able to achieve Bronze, Silver and Gold status depending on the number of items submitted.
A prerequisite for submitting items is that the item writer should be certified in the particular certification. Once this prerequisite is attained, an item writer can start submitting items. The Global Certification Team (GCT) accepts or rejects items based on the following criteria:
- An item is original and has not be submitted previously.
- An item is relevant to the topic, which is validated by the Certification tam and verified in a technical review session.
- An item must adhere to item writing guidelines.
To attain bronze status, an author must have 10 items accepted by GCT. As a reward for attaining bronze status, you will be provided with a free certification voucher and featured on SCN, a social network of professionals in the SAP ecosystem. In addition to the rewards mentioned above, internal SAP professionals, also receive access to the newest courseware even before it gets delivered to customers.
To attain silver status, an author must have submitted 20 items that make it through the SAP Certification Technical Review. In addition to the free certification voucher and being featured on SCN, you will also be invited to the enablement sessions and get discounted access to the SAP Learning Hub.
