WSU Internal Control All-Star - How You Can Earn a Credly Digital Badge 

WSU Internal Control All-Star Badge

Internal controls help keep our resources applied to our mission and the university's arrow pointing up! When you earn the WSU Internal Control All-Star digital credential, you demonstrate your understanding of your vital contribution to the university's internal control system.

The WSU Audit Update Blog recently featured a 10-part "Your Role in Internal Control" series explaining the origins and components of internal control systems. Everyone has a role in internal control!

You can earn the WSU Internal Control All-Star - Credly digital badge by scoring 90 percent or better on a 70-question exam about the series. The All-Star credential is is a free noncredit badge.

Reviewing the material and completing the exam will take about 60 to 90 minutes. The exam is in the form of a Qualtrics survey that you can access here:

The questions are generally in the order the information appears in the episodes. You should watch or rewatch each episode's video before answering some questions as you take the exam. It also helps to open the exam in a separate tab with a right-click.

You will see your score immediately after submitting the exam, followed by correct and incorrect replies. Qualtrics will forward your score and answers to me, Chris Cavanaugh, Director of Internal Audit Services, for review and processing. Thank you for being here; I appreciate your interest!

My Credly contact is attending a conference. Please feel free to take the exam, but there may be a delay in registering your badge until the week of July 22.
