Policy: The ABO partners with Authentic Testing to develop its Board Certification exams. Prometric utilizes industry-standard psychometric methods to develop and score each exam.
- After Authentic Testing completes scoring, results are sent to the ABO.
- The ABO notifies candidates of their score and pass/fail status through a written letter sent by U.S. mail.
- Candidates who pass the Board Certification become ABO Diplomates and will receive correspondence, which includes a copy of Guidelines for the Diplomate. Certificates are issued within 8 weeks of the receipt of the score reports.
- Scores are not released over the phone.
- Scores are never released to anyone but the candidate unless express written consent has been given.
