Provisional Feedback and Whiteboard
Just took the exam at 8am ET in the new format at a test center (PDD). Here are some issues -
Locking the questions didn't seem to make much difference. But I had to be careful to answer a question before clicking to break. The break button takes you to the exam summary and I noticed the "incomplete" on the question I was on just then. Had to be careful of the auto-next.
The white board is a mess. The page zooms in and out when trying to scroll and the pencil tool tip has a lag that makes my own writing unrecognizable. If you are working with text boxes, hitting return while typing might kept exiting the text box and taking me to the bottom of the whiteboard, and after repeated trials worked as intended.
Maybe this is due to the infancy of the format but I was not offered Provisional Feedback at the end of the test. Gotta wait it out I guess.
Thanks for the feedback. Provisional information on your exam performance is currently not available because NCARB has not yet set the cut score for the updated ARE. To set an updated cut score, we need statistics from 400 exam administrations per division. We expect this process to take around 4 weeks. You can read more about the cut score process on our blog - https://www.ncarb.org/blog/understanding-the-are-cut-score-update.
Regarding technical issues with the whiteboard, I recommend submitting these issues to NCARB Customer Service through our website - https://www.ncarb.org/contact
