What is an Exam Blueprint?

An exam blueprint provides a listing of the major content area and the number of items per content area intended to be included on each test form. It also includes the number of items each test form should include within each of these content and cognitive areas.


  • Demonstrate to students the topics you value, and serve as a study guide for them
  • Facilitate learning by providing a framework for students
  • Ensure consistent coverage of exam content
  • Communicate course expectations to stakeholders (e.g., trainees, other faculty, administration)
