Our contractor exams are generally scored using the percentage of questions answered correctly. Certification exams use scaled scoring. To find out more on scaled scoring, visit HERE.
A passing score for Certification Exams is set as part of the process at the Exam Development Committee (EDC). This part of the process involves setting item-level cut-scores, using the expert judgment of the Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) who are at the EDC. These experts determine what the minimum is that the candidate needs to know in order to obtain the certificate, and a passing score.
