What does this mean? Examination Audit?

Recommended Posts

From the December 2016 PE Newsletter:
http://ncees.org/wp-content/uploads/Licensure-Exchange_December-2016.pdf

The Committee on Examination Audit conducts regular audits of the NCEES exam program. This year, it will review administrations of the following PE exams: Electrical and Computer, Fire Protection, Mining and Mineral Processing, and Naval Architecture and Marine. It will also audit standardsetting studies for the PE Mechanical exam and the PE Mining and Mineral Processing exam.

Let's try to have 1 or 2 serious answers along the spamming? :)

I believe this to be a standard practice, but I wouldn't release anything to the public until the audit is finished.

That means an additional 2 week delay. But now for the Civil PE!!?

Haha. Other than Electrical, does anyone actually sign up for those other exams? Maybe the audit is to determine their future fate.

Mechanical is part of that mix. Honestly, I considered the fire protection one because I used to be in terrestrial and spacecraft fire safety and, later, facilities engineering. I still know most of the NFPA electrical codes by heart

That sounds like pretty interesting stuff. Not trying to knock those other exams, I just wonder how profitable it can be if very few people take them. For example, one time years ago I saw the PE Nuclear pass rate was 0%. So did one person take it and fail?

Actually, it's not good and certainly isn't SOP.

It means they are considering invalidating all exams. Tough break.

All, like even those previously taken? Or are you trolling?
