Students must complete two steps if they fail one or more sections of the test: first, they must meet with a designated academic advisor “to create, in collaboration with the academic advisor, and follow a development plan for remediation to be completed within one calendar year.” Second, they must retake the failed portion(s) of the exam.
Students are allowed up to two retakes for each failed section of the exam. Retakes occur during designated CAAP testing days during fall and spring semester, and students retake only the failed portions of the exam.
Following the results of the exam, students will receive a letter that discloses test results and lists advisor contact information if students are required to complete a developmental plan.
· What happens if I don’t pass my final retake?
Students who completed the maximum number of retakes (2) and who successfully complete a developmental plan, as required, have sixty (60) calendar days from the date of their final retest opportunity to provide written notification of their intent to appeal (for certification of proficiency using alternative methods) to the Vice President for Academic Affairs at the institution where they are enrolled as degree seeking. Students who fail to provide written notification of their intent to appeal within the specified time frame may only be readmitted if they are able to show evidence of satisfactory performance on the proficiency exam.
Students who fail to complete the required number of retakes and a developmental plan will be suspended from classes at any Regental university until they can successfully pass the proficiency exam. Because the exam is only administered once during fall and spring semester, respectively, the minimum length of suspension is one semester. Students who have completed all coursework will be denied graduation until they can successfully pass the exam.
