I got my results back from my recent exam (Construction and Evaluation) and I for sure thought that I passed but alas that was not the case.
I watched the Amber Book video that explains how to read the new scorecards which gave me great insight and more clarity (see this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SOJYOiuUbmg&t=603s)
so this is my scorecard for CE:
so if i were to divide my scaled score of 518 by 800 i would get 64.75%.
then when i looked at how i did in each section and take the average percent of scored items, i get 61.05%. NCARB says that the scaled score is more reliable than the individual sections calculations, but for CE it is said that the passing score range is 58%-65%. my scaled score is 64.75%, how is it that i didn't pass this section? Or to quote Max Smart (from "Get Smart"), did i "miss[ed] it by that much"?
[EDIT]: so the scaled score description says 550 is the minimum threshold (550/800 = 68.75%). if that is the case, then why list the range 58%-65% as a passing range?
