Good morning NCARB,
I just received an email from NCARB providing an update to the status of PjM cut score process. The email states that February tester volumes were dramatically up and early tester incentive till end on March 15 (as we have been notified by other NCARB announcements).
However, it then says that after March 15, NCARB will not be meeting until early April to establish the cut score, and score reports then won't be released until early May! That is astounding! Maybe I am remembering poorly, but I do not remember it taking NCARB that long to release scores for PPD once they received enough testers.
NCARB, early May is so, so far beyond the original promised 6-10 weeks (from November 1st). This will be 6 months from the launch of 5.0! I understand it has taken longer than expected to get enough testers, but once you receive enough testers, you should be ready and raring to go on getting the cut score set and sending out scores. I do not understand why it will take you an additional 6 weeks to get scores out after March 15!
As someone who took this exam not long after the launch of 5.0, and I believe I speak for others, that it is extremely frustrating to see that it is going to still be until May before we receive our scores. As you are aware, but its worth restating, many of us have major career and financial implications hinging on the results of these scores. I am earnestly requesting that NCARB do what they can to accelerate the the "meeting" and "release" process to that we are not looking at another 6 weeks past March 15.
Thank you for you continued efforts and anything you can do to make this happen.
(Exams taken: PcM 12/1/16; PjM 12/23/16; PA 2/24/17; CE 3/15/17)
