In developing the IDEX® California, we had Castle
Worldwide perform a study to analyze the profession of the Certified Interior Designer.
As the major function of the CCIDC certification program is to ensure competency and
professionalism in the field of interior design, passage of IDEX California® will provide assurance to the public that the Certified Interior Designer has met specific criteria that has been formulated to ensure that he or she is competent to provide services.
Before IDEX® California is finalized, however, the knowledge needed to be a competent professional in the field had to be determined. The process for identifying these competency areas is a “role delineation”, (job/task analysis), which serves as a blueprint for examination development.
The job/task analysis also helps determine the type of examination, such as written or practical, to be developed in order to assess competence.
