Program-of-Study Exam Performance Data

Statistical data for each program-of-study exam are reviewed at least once annually to determine how effectively the overall exam and individual items within the exam are performing. On average, 10% - 20% of the statistically weakest items are replaced. Additional reviews by subject matter experts focus on item validity relative to the research base (standards and performance indicators).
