PgMP - Scaled Scoring Model

"Before you can win a game, you have to not lose it."
Chuck Noll 

This page applies to the PgMP credential only - See 'Modified Angoff' for CAPM and PMP examination scoring.

PgMP Scaled Scoring Model

Scaled scoring is a statistically valid method that associates an individual’s performance on an assessment with the difficulty of the assessment; is not a percentage-based scoring system. The association between a candidate’s performance and the assessment’s difficulty is represented by a number on a scale in which a score represents minimum proficiency to pass the assessment. This method of scoring will be used on both the Multiple-choice Examination and the Multi-rater Assessment (MRA) of the PgMP™ credential process, with the pass level for both set at 325.  

The assessments are not designed to measure any performance beyond 325, higher scores will not be reported, only that you have passed. 

Score reports indicating that the candidate has not passed the assessment will contain diagnostic information that indicates overall and individual domain proficiency levels, where the domains on the score report correspond to the domain categories found in the PgMP Examination Specification.

The following principles explain why scaled scoring is the assessment industry’s standard for scoring candidates’ performance:
