Examinees who have taken the Written Examination, the OSCE, the Assessment of Fundamental Knowledge, Assessment of Clinical Judgement, the DSCKE or the NDSE, may within one month of the release of results request a verification of their score.
Verification of the Written Examination and OSCE
NDEB staff members perform a manual rescore by comparing the answers on your answer score sheet with the master score sheet. In most circumstances, this process confirms that no errors were made during the scanning and electronic scoring process.
Verification of the AFK, ACJ and DSCKE
NDEB staff members confirm the score produced from the electronic examination matches the score provided to the examinee. The examinee’s answers are then compared to the master answer key. NDEB staff also confirms the test equating, rescaling (if applicable) has been calculated correctly.
Verification of the NDSE
There are two options for verification of an NDSE score.
A rescore is a verification of the calculation of the final grade. A rescore is unlikely to change your final grade as all failing results have already been re-calculated by NDEB staff.
A regrade is a re-evaluation of your performance using the original grading rubric, by a different group of examiners.
If you intend to request a rescore followed by a regrade if your result does not change, you must request both the rescore and regrade at the same time. When both a rescore and regrade are requested, the rescore will be completed first. If the rescore results in a passing grade, NDEB will cancel the regrade request and refund the regrade fee.
