Journal CPE Online Quizzes

How it works

  1. Register for the Journal CPE Online Quizzes. Purchase one quiz or a subscription of four. Quizzes are available from the eight most recent issues at any given time.
    • Members-only rates: $30 per quiz or $109 for four quizzes. (Currently $0 for a quiz for members during the partial government shutdown! Click on 'purchase one journal quiz' box below.)
    • Non-member rates: $56 per quiz or $204 for four quizzes. Non-member rates do not include a copy of the Journal.
  2. Read the quarterly Journal of Government Financial Management. Plan on spending about three hours to read the applicable information and then take the quiz.
  3. Take the quiz! After reading the Journal, log in to take the 25-question quiz. Earn three CPEs* for each quiz you complete with a score of 80% or better.
    Important: If you take the quiz and do not pass, you must purchase another opportunity to take that quiz.
  4. Print your certificate. From the Quiz Results page, click on the button labeled "Click Here to Receive Your Certificate" and print your certificate.

How to claim your free quiz during the shutdown

As the shutdown continues, we're even more committed to finding ways to support our members. So, during the federal government shutdown, we are proud to offer a FREE Journal CPE Online quiz to members. Members who take advantage can earn up to three CPEs by completing the quiz.

Obtaining your free quiz is easy (Remember, you need to read the issue of the Journal before you take that issue's quiz):

  • 'Purchase' one Journal quiz. (The price will indicate $0)
  • Once you are in the online store, select "Add to Cart" then "View Shopping Cart"
  • Click "Check Out"
  • You will be redirected to the "Take a Quiz" page where you can choose the quiz you would like to take

Once completed, you will receive your CPE certificate if you achieved an 80% or better or a quiz review if you got less than 80%.
