Scoring Process

CCEB takes many steps to ensure the accurate scoring of candidate exams. These steps include the following:

Prior to the Exam

  • An Item Review Committee comprised of chiropractors from across Canada meets on an annual basis to review the questions that will be included in the following year’s exams.
  • Prior to the exam being printed for distribution, the questions are again reviewed by a chiropractor.
  • A professional translator is used to translate the questions for our French exams. The translated questions are then reviewed by a francophone chiropractor.

Following the Exam

  • The score forms are marked electronically.
  • The score forms of all unsuccessful and borderline candidates are then rescored by hand to ensure accuracy.
  • The feedback received from candidates is reviewed by a chiropractor. This may result in a recommendation to the pass score setting committee that the question(s) be removed from scoring or the scoring key adjusted. 
  • A committee of chiropractors from across Canada meets for a full day to review the exam item-by-item, the feedback recommendations, and set the pass score using a modified Angoff method. Curved grading is not used and fail rates can vary from exam to exam.
  • The score is then reviewed and finalized by a psychometrician. Psychometrics deals with the science of measuring knowledge, skills and abilities. 
Certificates
  • Certificates will be mailed following email release of results
  • Please provide notice of any address changes that occur after the exam 
  • Duplicate/Replacement Certificates are available at a fee of $150.00 and can be ordered online here
  • If your Certificate has been damaged during postal delivery, please return to CCEB and it will be replaced free of charge 
  • Graduation must occur within three months of taking the Component C exam. If graduation has not occurred within that three month period then the Candidate has not maintained their eligibility status and exam results will be voided.
