Carefully read over this page and take notice of all the links and resources that are provided. Resources include an updated Scoring Guide with Sample Score Reports, Frequently Asked Questions, and Scoring Calculator. Remember, you will not receive a total score UNTIL you complete all four components. Because this is a new process, the final score required for certification has not yet been set.  You will receive feedback on each component. National Boards will also offer recommendations as to whether you should consider redoing the component – definitely if you score below the floor score of 1.75.

Candidates have the option of redoing right away or waiting until you receive a final score. For this reason, candidates may choose to wait and see what they score on other components before they decide to redo a component. Keep in mind scores are also weighted.
