Does anyone have any idea what the cutoff score will be?

No one knows yet. Many are predicting it will be close to what has been used in the past, but as of now, it's all conjecture. It will be announced at the same time scores are released as far as I know.

What has been used in the past? 3.0? 2.75?

It was previously 2.75 with some leveling points added. NBCoach can speak more knowledgeably about this.

Cutoff score

Iím a little confused because it says you need to pass all four components plus have a passing overall score. But I donít understand how you could pass all four components and NOT have a passing overall score.

Math is hard.

C1 is weirdly configured and wasn't properly calculated in the first round for the new generation. A component won't be considered if it scores below 1.75 (I think), but that's the only disqualification for a component.

All 4 are averaged together and each component is weighted differently. So you could do poorly on C4 and rock C3 and achieve, but if you rock C4 and tank C3, you might not.

Yes, Zia has explained it well. The math is especially confusing now because we don't know the cut score. The weights assigned to not only each component, but in the case of C1, also to the PARTS of the component which make conjecture difficult.

C1 and 3 are weighted the most, C2 and 4 are weighted less.

When the score reports are released, there will be info with it to help you do the figuring on your own - although they will have already done the math.

In addition to just the points earned for each component, in the past they gave everyone (I think) 12 points to even the playing ground a bit...like a handicap when keeping score in golf. I don't know if that will be the case now in the new process.

Right now all we can do is wait. Try to breathe and keep calm. Nothing will hurry the scores and it will likely be mid-late December before they are released. Everyone is anxious but we'll be here for you when the time comes.

Math is hard. Haha. Iím doing EA Math.

But even if I score low on one component if I get over 1.75 then Iíve technically passed it, so it doesnít sound like anyone Who gets at least 1.75 would not pass unless the overall average is above 1.75 which seems contradictory. I donít understand the theory behind ďyou could pass all four components and still not achieve certification.Ē Thatís like me saying to my students that if they pass each individual lesson topic they could still fail the chapter test.

Because the components are weighted. C1 & C3 count for waaay more.

Like I said, math is hard.

Tom Petty was right: Waiting is the hardest part.
