Here’s a comprehensive list of the changes NCARB has made to the latest edition of the ARE 5.0 Guidelines:
Score Validity Policy: We’ve replaced the “Rolling Clock” section of the Guidelines with a new “Score Validity Policy” section and removed references to the rolling clock policy throughout.
Under the score validity policy, passing ARE divisional scores will remain valid throughout the delivery of the exam version under which they were taken (e.g., ARE 5.0). They’ll also be used to establish credit toward the immediately following version of the exam (e.g., ARE 6.0). If the jurisdiction where you are seeking licensure has a rolling clock requirement, you will still be subject to their rolling clock.
Score Reports: Previous divisional passes and the related rolling clock information will no longer show on ARE 5.0 score reports, unless you are seeking licensure from a jurisdiction with a rolling clock requirement. The section of the Guidelines that details how to read a score report now explains this difference.
