According to Asim Shahzad, Humza’s father, the Microsoft Office specialist exams are conducted by providing the participants a virtual environment, where capabilities of each individual are established by solving a series of problems or tasks as part of a predominant project. He also said about earlier academic methods as they focused on memorizing answers and filling out check boxes. But these methods are no longer seen as feasible.
