Beta Questions

Questioning techniques

  • Select one or more responses that best complete the statement or answer the question. Distractors, or incorrect answers, are response options that an examinee with incomplete know ledge or skill would likely choose. However, they are generally plausible responses that fit in the content area defined by the test objective.
  • Unanswered questions are scored as incorrect; there is no penalty for guessing.
  • Unscored content
    • Your examination may include unscored items that are placed on the test to gather statistical information. These items are not identified on the form and do not affect your score.

Exam Results

  • Scaled scoring models are used to equate scores across multiple exam forms that may have slightly different difficulty levels.
  • Your score report contains a table of classifications of your performance at each section level.
    • Designed to provide general feedback concerning your examination performance.
    • The examination uses a compensatory scoring model, which means that you do not need to “pass” the individual sections, only the overall examination.
