A: Beginning with the move to computer testing in March, 2013, test scores are no longer reported as the total number of questions answered correctly. In computer-based testing, there are different forms of the exam offered, with each form containing different questions. So that all examinees are scored fairly, a statistical procedure is applied to ensure that a score earned on one test form is equal to the same score earned on a different test form. Scores have been 'scaled' to range from 200 to 300 points, with 200 meaning no correct answers and 300 meaning all correct answers. A minimum of 265 points is required to pass.

A: For security purposes, we cannot release copies of the examination, or even the questions that were missed.

These percentage scores enable examinees to determine the areas where they are strong and the areas where they are weak. In preparing to retake the Credentialing Exam, examinees should focus attention particularly on the content areas where they scored the lower percentages.
