Because candidates will be completing different forms of their exam in the future, it will not be possible to establish a single pass mark for each exam. Therefore, pass marks for CAS exams will no longer be published. Certain other statistics, such as the percent of candidates that pass, will continue to be published.
On the pass marks, there won’t be any effort to standardize them? So, there will be some candidates sitting for objectively harder exams than others? I don’t like the sound of that.
Also, i understand not releasing solutions to build up a question pool. But doesn’t that mean the CAS would also have to step away from their Blooms methodology? What’s the point of creating non-remedial questions to test our critical thinking if they won’t verify whether our reasoning is correct? There’d be no way to learn and adjust for future sittings.
Sorry if I’m just catching up. I didn’t read too far into the future exam process, since i was hoping to skate past 9 and be done with all of this.
They updated the “verify candidates education status” lookup today so hopefully that means we will get pass ratios and passing candidate names in the next couple of days. Very interested to see how they compare.
Is anybody else still waiting for a number score? I got a pass/fail grade, but the Grade Report is blank. CAS said they’re working to fix it, but it seems that most people have gotten their score already
Record high rates for 5 and 7… that’s nuts, they’ve never been that high excluding the TBE sitting for Spring 2018 Exam 5… guess that means for sure it’s going to be brutal this spring, especially for 7 which has never been that high ever.
6 and 8 had low # of takers… but consistent with historical pass rates.
However, I am glad to see the MAS exams starting to become more reasonable. Those exams had royally screwed over candidates over in Fall 2018 and Spring 2019 sittings.
