Yeah I started my career in aerospace, which is pretty high stakes. Now I'm working in plastics manufacturing... very different.

if the plane lands with one engine but is built with 2, is that partial credit?

Well, I was working in human space flight (External Tank of the space shuttle and crew cabin structure of Orion). So yeah, less opportunity for partial credit.

@jean15paul_PE is the beam in your picture moving up and down, or left to right? I always thought it was left to right, but now I'm (I think correctly) seeing it as up to down and my brain is in a pretzel.

Pass rates have been updated on NCEES' website.

Of course power has the lowest pass rate... But that industrial exam, though!

any idea yet what the cut score on this one looked like?

you can extrapolate from the scores provide in the thread I created in the Power sub-forum. It's likely 53/43 ish. Justin (EngPro Guide guy) will publish his best guess in the coming weeks as the survey results come in. It's all still a guess since his data set it only the folks who respond to his survey (which is only given to folks who have purchased things from him)

My highly unscientific guess is 53-54.  Last Octobers' exam felt brutal to me .. and think that had a cut of 51.  I didn't take April but heard it was around a 57 and not a horrible exam.  So, I'd put this exam somewhere in the middle.  Again, absolutely nothing more than gut feel on this.

Computer looks brutal. It's down there with Nuclear. 

Industrial, wow. Something's not right there. I mean there shouldn't and isn't a max pass rate, but's historically way outside the normal "range". A number that high would make me wonder if there was a security breach? They're getting a new CBT in October, so maybe it doesn't matter?

OTOH, there are so few people taking it that it's bound to affect the scores a bit. The 0% pass rate for retakes is unnerving, though.

Screw DORA.

I can't remember if it was this thread, or April's WTTS, or the SPAM thread, but I recall telling someone that they'll be saying the above a lot. They didn't believe me. This is kinda par for the course for Colorado.
