Despite the technical problems experienced during the November 3 session of the RCA, overall the 2015 RCA went well, had good reliability and registrant performance was consistent with projections. Based on the experience of other regulatory organizations that conduct different forms of continuing competence assessment, the College has worked on the estimate that 2-10% of registrants would not meet standard on their first attempt at the RCA. Table 2 indicates that of those registrants whose data was sufficient to be included in the analysis, 1.5% received the result of Did Not Meet Standard. RCA scoring information can be found here.
