Texas PE Structure cut-off

Recommended Posts

Now, the results are out, would request Texas PE- Structures  to post there actual scores, especially folks who have failed. This would help us judge the cut-off.

do they post the score for everyone? even those who passed? or is this just a statistic pass/fail rate?

Scores got updated.  Texas test takers can start checking now.  I just saw mine not bad considering I failed twice 61% and 68% and this third try I passed 80%.

So that means 50 or 51 May have been the cut score? I saw someone fail with a 50/80 on another topic.

I failed civ str in GA with a 50 (30 AM + 20 PM) out of 80. Seeing this post from TX where 47/80 was a 66% score leads me to believe that scores were adjusted by 6 questions this round, so my 50/80 would really be 56/80 or 70%... Is this the right line of thinking? 

Makes me absolutely nauseous to think that the cut score was 51.

For Texas, if your score does not say 70 or greater you will not pass.

See: §133.73 Examination Results and Analysis.

By your logic, then 50 should be the cut-off as scaled 70% is pass.

Yeah, it stops making sense if we consider 70% to be passing (although I believed that we had always thought that was so, but not a known rule).

Either way, 50 was obviously not the cut off since myself and several others failed with it. I'm guessing 51 then. Still sucks.

It looks like they dropped 8 questions. So 50/72=.69444 repeating. If you assume proper rounding you couldn’t have missed the 70% by any less.

@Hemi79

I didn't take an official course but I got a lot of prep materials from my coworkers. Additionally, my significant other and I took the exam at the same time. This helped keep us accountable because at the end of the work day it's really easy to say "I will just do it later." I would find a study buddy because we were able to pull from each other's knowledge to learn what we didn't know on the exam. I don't have a civil undergrad (masters is Structural) so I basically had to learn the entire first half besides the simple structures questions. I also recommend taking as many practice tests as possible! This way you're learning how to solve the problems like you would on exam day. Good luck!

Yeah, it's making me pretty sick thinking about it.
