Newly Scorable Questions Can Affect OLA Individual Performances

Newly Scorable Questions Can Affect OLA Individual Performances

Online Longitudinal Assessment (OLA) current cumulative scores are updated every Monday for diplomates who have answered at least 52 scorable questions. The current cumulative score can change, even for participants who haven’t recently answered questions.

Most often, the reason for the change is that questions don’t count toward the current cumulative score until they have met several minimum metrics: have been answered at least 50 times, have 10 question ratings, and have acceptable psychometric statistics. Participants could have answered questions weeks ago that have only recently been included in the current cumulative score.

It’s important to note that current cumulative scores don’t impact Continuing Certification Part 3 status. Diplomates have their first annual performance evaluation on January 1 after they have answered 200 scorable questions.
