I'm guessing a lot of them. The live chat has been disabled on my screen.

@tres amigos  I am unaware of any correlation between the disabling of live chat and the release?

Strange to think that there are a few people out there who know whether or not I passed..but I'm not one of them...

Would you rather find out that the exam had posted through your email, this thread, or refreshing the NCEES page and accidentally having it load while you were looking at it?

Here is my theory:

If you fail, you will get an email to go to the NCEES website to view your results

But if you pass they will send you an email saying: " You have been granted licensure as Professional Engineer #xxxxx"

So not only do you find out the test results are out through email, but you also find out if you failed or passed through email.

Even if NCEES wanted to tell you what day it is, it sounds like some of the state board's rule's prohibit NCEES from doing so.

First, wow what was said that caused them to break script?!

Second, it's a bit more subtle than they allude to. Yes, their "customers" are the state boards, not the examinees. And it is true that the can't release the results without the go ahead from the respective state boards.

But it appears that while they don't send out all of the notifications to the states at the exact same time, it seems to trickle out over a business day or two, they won't send the initial notification until everything is ready to go.  So presently the results notifications aren't even ready to be sent out to the states. Like I said above, there are many non-public reasons for this. Best to stay calm. 

In the grand scheme of things, this is still early in the waiting process. It could be so much worse.

Go burn off the stress in the spam thread:

I wonder how many eyeroll emojis are being used in the NCEES public comms team's internal chat system right now?

There probably isn't one, just remember last October, the live chats were getting disabled and then we received the results soon after that.

I can be patient. It’s just hard to. Haha. I won’t harass NCEES. It’s like watching a pot wait to boil.

Their day ends at 5:00, so they didn't go home.

It's definitely not a sign that the results are coming soon.

If it's like last session, it means that they were getting harassed too much. Shutting down the chat function is NOT something to be proud of. 

And I say this to no-one in particular and to everyone, including the lurkers.

Just be cool with NCEES, please! Be cool with your state boards too. You took this test to be a professional. Act like a professional.

Nope, NCEES sends the same email pass or fail.

The licence email comes separately and from the state (or their surrogate).

I was surprised to read that too, they must be sick of all the questions.  I just was looking on twitter to see if they had announced anything and found the above thread from today.  Just glad I didn't provoke them :ohmy:

No, that happened last cycle when they were likely getting bombarded with questions.

This.

think of it this way (the majority of us are engineers here, so if you haven’t experienced this, you will at some point): how would you feel if you were hounded over and over by a customer, boss, colleague, etc. for something you could not immediately do something about? NCEES is made up of people who have feelings just like you, and they are in this exact scenario as we speak.

Harrassing the people who work there will not make the results come out any faster, but it will decrease morale amongst their employees, so these attempts are both fruitless and destructive.

I ask with RB, PLEASE be cool. They are NOT out to get you. They’re doing their job.

I was wondering the same thing today. If you find out send me a screenshot of your time sheet.

Fingers crossed for the Lone Star State scores posting soon.

Dude stop, they just have to run it through a scantron machine. You're shilling for Bureaucrats.

Hey, have you heard of the new thing NCEES has called a “grading process?” Check it out, looks pretty cool!

I've read everything they've ever written.

1 day to run through scantron

1 day to regrade a sample

1 day to convene and talk about average score, standard deviation, probability of excedance, etc

3 days for expert engineers to rework problems

1 day reconvene and determine cut score

1 day to post results

-----------------------------------------

= 2 weeks (conservatively)

 

Many of us would get fired if we ran a project by these standards. Those that did would go to work for the government.

 

Sincerely,

--Frustrated Test-Taker

I understand your frustration, i’ve Been there. But my original point wasn’t that NCEES’s grading process is perfect (or necessarily good), just that no one deserves to be harassed.

Harassed =/= people calling to get their money's worth. I get ~50 emails & several calls per day for people wanting a product they paid good money for. I would be rightfully fired if I stopped answering my email. Instead, I just tell them when they can expect results from me and then do my best to get it out the door, all the while sending status updates.

Thoughts?? This guy posted saying when he tries to register for the exam, it shows that he has already passed it. Is that for real? Mine does not, it says I cannot register until a certain date.😱

There are two groups of people. One group is adamant that this is true. The second group firmly believes this is a hoax.

once results are release let the forum know if this is legit or false.
