Nope! Where did you hear that? It used to be 275. That seems like quite the jump.

I meant, "Nope, I haven't heard that," not, "Nope, that's untrue." Dang, I hope it is true, because then I think I have a slam dunk at certification.

It came from our state contact person in NC. Check out NBCT Support on Facebook.

Performance Standard
The intention of the assessment redesign was not to raise or lower the standard for achieving National Board Certification. Candidates must demonstrate the same level of accomplished teaching practice to achieve certification that was required to achieve certification on the previous assessment.

However, the weighted scale, and as a result, the total weighted scaled score requirement has changed. On the previous assessment, the total weighted scaled score to achieve was 275. On the revised assessment, the total weighted scaled score to achieve is 110.

Yes!! We got an email yesterday from the state. I noticed that the "range" is from 30-180.

All this is true...BUT there is still information we don't have so we can't yet ascertain the "meaning" of the 110 (other than it's the new cut score) OR how it is figured. Here are the requirements we do know:

1. Candidates must earn a total WEIGHTED score at or above the Performance Standard of 110.

2. Candidates must earn a minimill UNWEIGHTED average score of 1.75 on C1

3. Candidates must earn a minimum UNWEIGHTED average score of 1.75 across Components 2, 3, and 4.

What we DON'T yet know are how the scores are going to be WEIGHTED. We know the percentage weights, but not WEIGHTED SCALE SCORE. Here is the definition of Weighted Scale Score: A component or exercise score that has been multiplied by a scaling weight (a number) that reflects its importance or weight within the total assessment and transforms the score to a scale different than the rubric score scale. Score reports given in 2015 and 2016 contained only the UNWEIGHTED, RAW rubric scale scores. The 2017 score reports will have the scaling weights and weighted scaled scores.

By early Dec., there should be a new sample score report, a score calculator and a revised Scoring Guide which will be shared BEFORE scores are released.

That is all I know. I wish we had ALL the pieces of this puzzle, but hopefully they will be along soon. Hang in there everyone!

Ok here’s my wondering- if all of your scores are in the 3 range would it still be hypothetically possible not to pass?

I think scores all in the 3 range should be certifiable...but until all the parts of the puzzle are known, no one can say for sure.

Where do you all gain this information about the cut scores from? I was looking on the website, but I was unable to find it. I would like to share the information with some candidates who are trying to get certified with me. Thanks!

Cut score

I wonder why they are bothering to release the cut score without the other information. It is meaningless at this point. I'll get excited when the weight multipliers and corrected calculator are released.

I got the following information that confirms the 110. So what does that mean when looking at the score calculator? Any mathematicians that can make the connection?

I'm with ya AYA Chem. The info is worthless without all parts of the puzzle being available.

fubuman and Sarahehbeth: The NB shared this information with various state "networks" of Professional Learning Facilitators (formerly known as Candidate Support Providers) in each state. Those FLPs were then free to share the info with other FLPs and candidates. Some shared with candidates, some didn't - mainly because until all the other parts of the puzzle become known, it's impossible to garner any real meaning from the number 110.

It's not on the website as far as I can tell. I couldn't find it anywhere.

There has been a score calculator on the NB site for years, but it was calculated for the OLD scoring process. If it's still there it is useless.

The NB has said that in "early Dec. - and God only knows what THAT means", they will add a new scoring guide, scoring calculator and the remaining information that will allow us to decipher the meaning of the 110 - how it's calculated etc. My guess is that all that will come first...then actual scores will be released.

Beyond that I have no clue!

So don't beat yourself up for not understanding this. It's UN-UNDERSTANDABLE in it's current form. We just have to be patient!

Last year we were assured we would get our scores no later than December 31st. Have they announced the same date this year, or might this drag into the new year? The earlier we know, the earlier we can plan to retake a component if necessary.

Score needed to certify
Old 11-13-2017, 03:42 PM
 
Clip to ScrapBook #18

If the score to certify ranges from 110 to 180 then my thinking is the following:

(110/180)*100 = 61.1% is the percentage needed to certify.

To convert this to a scaled scored we do the following:

61.1*4.25 = 260. This would be the new score needed, which is 15 points less than the old scaled score of 275.

You can then use the calculator that they have online to see your score.
