Most OLA Participants are Meeting or Exceeding Their Passing Standard

Online Longitudinal Assessment (OLA) was released as an option for fulfilling the MOC Part 3 requirement for diagnostic radiology and diagnostic radiology subspecialty diplomates in 2019 and for interventional radiology, medical physics, and radiation oncology diplomates in 2020. We recently began reporting the OLA current cumulative score for diplomates in all specialties who have answered 52 scorable questions.

Currently, more than 95 percent of diplomates have a cumulative score that meets or exceeds the OLA passing standard. These are preliminary data, since many have been participating in OLA for less than a year. Also, many participants with a cumulative score below the passing standard have one or more forfeited OLA questions. These diplomates still have plenty of time to remediate their MOC Part 3 performance.

To date, participants have answered nearly 3 million OLA questions. The overall question relevance rating, based on participant feedback, is 4.08 out of 5. Given the wide diversity of practice patterns and subspecialization, this is especially promising and a testament to the extraordinary efforts of volunteers who write questions.

For more information, visit the scoring and performance evaluation section of our OLA FAQs or contact a certification services manager at or (520) 790-2900.
