Practice Management Score Reports

If you took the Practice Management exam between December 14, 2020, and yesterday, your score report will be processed per your jurisdiction’s requirements and may already be viewable in your NCARB Record. If you have tested since January 27 or have a Practice Management exam scheduled in the future, you will be able to receive provisional feedback at the end of your administration and can expect to receive your score report within a few business days of testing.

Score Reports for All Other Divisions

NCARB anticipates releasing the score reports for Project Management and Project Planning & Design next. We expect to release score reports for Programming & Analysis, Project Development & Documentation, and Construction & Evaluation last.

If you take or have taken any of these five ARE divisions between December 14, 2020, and the day that division’s results are released, you will not receive a score report for that test until after the updated cut scores have been set. Once the cut score for a division is set, provisional feedback will return at the test center and normal score result processing times will be restored.

NCARB will continue to provide updates on the anticipated release of exam scores as necessary, and you will receive an email alert once your score report is ready to view in My NCARB.

Visit the NCARB Blog for more information about score reports, and be on the lookout for another article providing more information about the range of cut scores after score reports for all six divisions have been released.

Why Setting Cut Scores Takes Time

We know that waiting for your score report can be stressful, and we’re working to establish the updated cut scores as quickly as the process allows. It’s NCARB’s responsibility to ensure that the updated cut scores are valid, fair, and fully vetted—a process that requires data from at least 400 exam administrations per division. Learn more about how NCARB sets cut scores.

We appreciate your ongoing patience during this process.
