CJCP® Passing Point Study Results
As announced, JCR annually participates in and completes a passing point study to determine the appropriateness of our passing score requirements. The methodology used to set the initial minimum passing score is the Angoff method in which psychometric experts judge the passing probability of each question on the CJCP examination.
JCR works with a team of subject matter experts, Joint Commission surveyors, Standards Interpretation Group subject matter experts, and Joint Commission consultants on this project, which is led by the psychometric experts at PSI, the vendor that works with JCR on the CJCP application, CJCP recertification applications, registration, and examination processes.
CJCP candidates who take the examination in January of each year are part of the passing point study, and we thank them for their patience in obtaining their final score reports which are anticipated annually in mid-February. The passing rates for the exams are then established for the calendar year. We congratulate and welcome those who passed the examination into our CJCP cadre.
