    How many of each item type and how many case study items or case studies varies by the form within each division.  But all of our forms are balanced so they are all of equal fairness in item difficulty and time.  This is true in both ARE 4.0 and ARE 5.0.  What is consistent in PPD:

    • 120 items
    • 5 hour appointment time
    • 1 to 2 case studies with approximately 10-20 items total (always located at the end of the exam)
    • pretest items
    • individual items
    • item types: multiple choice, check-all-that-apply, quantitative-fill-in-the-blanks, hotspot, drag-and-place
