PE Result Dates by State

Recommended Posts

Thanks for putting this together. I am currently studying for the FE in 10 days, and had been hoping to submit an application to the Board of MA to take the PE exam in the Spring, but it seems that the results will come in after the deadline for application to the Board.

I have the required experience, but received my undergraduate education outside the US, so it took me a while to get my education approved and I am finally able to take the FE exam.

Has anybody been successful in taking both exams back to back in MA, or should I expect to be taking it in the fall?

Thanks!

You can take the exams on consecutive days (actually taking the PE before the FE), so I would assume you could sit for the PE before your FE results come in. If you pass the PE and not the FE, you just have to re-take the FE. I know it works this way in Kentucky, but it might differ by state.

Just a friendly test. The word is to light in automatically reply and post. People need to choose the color first before you reply.

With the NCEES that we might received the exam result by early Dec.

I read the Excel table. Thanks.

Yet, these are not the "raw scores" are they? They are the weighted extrapolated scores correct? This may be hard to answer because each state is different.....yet if you look at Vermont vs. Virginia for example......the score is differernt by about a delta of 20 points in some years

You're not serious, are you? It's PE result DATES, not scores..

Holy moly, California's been over 85-90 consistently! I thought did pretty well, but I only did 80 questions, was there a third super-duper-depth module I missed?

OK I feel like an idiot....too early and no coffee I guess. I looked at it quickly and and read it wrong.

BTW, 22 years in industry and decided to take the test (have not needed it really in the construction field).......yet think it is important to be professionally accredited, if I am working in the mechanical contracting industry.

Raw scores have probably been discussed several times herein, and it takes a while I am sure for NCEES to decided the minimum score for passing per discipline. Any comments are appreciated.

Overall the test drove me a bit crazy with the 6 minute drill. Not sure if passing someone for their ability to find things in reference books quickly is what industry is looking for. On the other had there were questions that forced you to think analytically quickly. I took the HVAC PM test.......and there were unit issues on the test I could debate with the panel that created the test. Not going any further due to the ethics involved with confidentiality of the test though.

Good. I was hoping that it was an honest mistake.

My suggestion to you is to forget about raw and adjusted scores. If you pass, you won't give a rat's ass what the cut score was. If you fail, you will get a diagnostic report that will tell you what subjects you need to focus on for the next go-round. Obsessing over a cut score will literally get you nowhere, and studying just to get to some theoretical cut score will increase your chances of failing again.

California has a special portion of questions devoted to earthquakes. No other state has that requirement (I believe).

Holy moly, looks like April 2010 was significantly faster across the board. Any idea what changed, if anything? People working harder to keep their jobs maybe?

I think that is when a lot of states started allowing the NCEES to mail results directly to testees instead of sending them to the board for approval first.

If they stick to the 'quicker' response time (like the April 2011 dates), I'm guessing results on December 16th.

So this spreadsheet says that Connecticut was notified by a letter in 2010. But I'm pretty sure we'll be notified by NCEES email this year? I got my FE results from the NCEES website last fall, does anyone know anythign about CT and the timeframe?

In October of 2010 I took the test in CT and was notified that II failed right before xmas via an email from NCEES.

I then took the April 2011 test in CT and was notified of a pass in June via an email from NCEES.

Worth noting the information was on the NCEES site hours before the email actually came.

Good luck

Tim

As it turns out, it is state-by-state. In MA, you are not allowed to take the PE exam unless your application has been approved by the Board. The board of MA will not review your PE application if it is not complete, and not having FE results counts as "not complete." The deadline for the PE application was a couple of weeks before the FE results came out, so I had to wait another 6 months to take the test... Took the PE in October 2012, waiting to hear back. I hope to never have to take it again.
