Can I flunk the Proficiency Exam CAAP?
Yes. The Regents have established cutoffs for all four exams. You must achieve that score or higher to pass. The cutoffs are:
After the tests are given, they are shipped to ACT for grading. When ACT finishes, they mail them back to the BHSU Director of Assessment. Participants are sent an email notification to their yellowjackets account that the scores are available on line.
Do I need to study for the Exam?
The greatest difficulty students have is pacing themselves in taking the tests. Since the tests are timed, you must complete them as quickly as you can. To prepare for this, we recommend that you attend our help sessions. The dates for those can be found by clicking here.
If you are unable to attend one/any of these, you can prepare for the testing by signing up for the Learning Plus Skills self-paced, self-study in the Student Assistance Center.
How soon do I get my results from the Exam?
It usually takes about a month from the time the tests are given until the student receives the scores. The Director of Academic Support at Black Hills State will notify you that the scores are available on line with an email to your yellowjackets account.
