New Score Validity Policy
Under the score validity policy, a passed exam division would remain valid throughout the delivery of the exam version under which it was taken, as well as the next exam version. For example, ARE 5.0 divisions:
- Would be valid throughout the delivery of the version of the exam under which they were taken (i.e., ARE 5.0), AND
- Would be used to establish appropriate credits under the next version of the exam (likely ARE 6.0) that would remain valid until this version ends.
For example: Passed ARE 5.0 divisions will remain valid throughout the delivery of ARE 5.0, and future credits based on passed ARE 5.0 divisions will remain valid throughout the delivery of ARE 6.0. If a candidate is not ARE-complete before the end of ARE 6.0 delivery, at the time of launching ARE 7.0, their ARE 5.0 passed divisions and any ARE 6.0 credits based on those scores will be retired.
