The CVPM Board uses the Modified Angoff Rating Method to develop the pass point for each examination; the most widely accepted scientific method for determining a pass point. Simplified, when a test question is added to the examination database it is reviewed and rated by a Committee of Subject Matter Experts and given an individual difficulty rating. When test questions are compiled to form the examination, (based on the test blue print which identifies how many questions for each domain are on the examination), the examination pass point is determined from the individual difficulty ratings for the questions selected for that specific examination. Depending on the composition of examination items, the pass point may fluctuate up or down a few points with each examination. Using this methodology there is no curve, and candidates do not compete against each other. There is no limit on the number of candidates who may pass or fail the test.
