Discrete Option Multiple Choice (DOMC) question format

All SailPoint certification exams use the Discrete Option Multiple Choice (DOMC) question format, a unique system for multiple choice testing.

Instead of showing all the answer options at once, a series of options are randomly presented one at a time. For each option, the test taker chooses YES or NO, indicating whether he or she thinks the option is correct. To get the full question right, the candidate must correctly identify which options in the series are correct and which are incorrect.

DOMC questions provide a very different test experience. There is no “undo” or “back” or "skip question" capability, nor is there the ability to review questions at the end or to change answers. Therefore it is important to carefully consider the question in front of you before clicking.

We strongly recommend that you try examples of a DOMC test to familiarize yourself with the format in advance.

A couple of good examples are:

Here is a whitepaper on DOMC if you want to dive into it further.
