Per “Certification Examination” policy item #1h, programs are required to:
Publish honest, reliable, accurate data and information to the public regarding its performance. Publications can be in various formats but must include posting the following information on a website that is linked to the Council’s List of Accredited Educational Programs. The information must include: Certification examination pass rate for first-time takers (refer to Public Disclosure of Accreditation Decisions and Performance Data, P-24).
If a program meets the COA pass rate requirement of 80% under Method 2 or Method 3 it can post its pass rates using these calculations; however, the website posting must include the first-time pass rate for the cohort (i.e., the Method 1 calculation) as well.
