IR/DR Certifying Exam Scoring and Results
Last verified on September 15, 2021
Exam ScoringAll ABR exam scoring is criterion referenced, meaning that a passing standard is established in advance of the exam. The exam is not graded on a curve, and there is no set percentage of failures.
- Each portion of the exam (computer-based and oral) is scored separately as pass/fail.
- To achieve an overall pass result, a candidate must pass both the computer-based and oral portions of the exam.
- Candidates who fail the exam may re-examine in the computer-based and/or oral portion(s) of the exam as needed.
