Frequently asked questions

  • How many questions are there in the questionnaire?

    The questionnaire consists of 233 questions, broken down into four steps. When creating a questionnaire, you can indicate the step for which you would like to obtain certification for your organisation. Respondents will then only be given the questions for the step in question and the steps below it. The number of questions per step follow below:

    • Step 2: 38 questions
    • Step 3: 105 questions
    • Step 4: 185 questions
    • Step 5: 233 questions
  • How is the score calculated?

    You must achieve a minimum of 70, 75 or 80% of the maximum score. The step in question will then turn green. Your organisation will have met the requirements for a certain step if:

    • the minimum requirements per company aspect of the step in question have been met and the same applies for the underlying steps. For example: if you opt for step 3, you will also need to achieve the minimum score for step 2;
    • the sum of the weighted scores for all of the company aspects of the steps must comply with the minimum requirement for the step in question. The percentage varies from one step to another (70, 75 or 80%).
  • Which questions does the questionnaire contain?
