Examination Standards for Licensure: The Reality of "75."
Gross, Leon J.
Journal of Optometric Education, v16 n3 p72-75 Spr 1991
Many state optometric licensing boards require a scaled or percentage score of 75 on each section. A study of multiple criteria and pass-fail rates suggests that high failure rates are a result not of candidate ability but of arbitrary classification of test content. State boards are encouraged to resolve these problems. (MSE)
