Change in the performance standard of the Step 2 CS examination
Posted On : December 21, 2012
The Step 2 Committee decided to increase the performance levels required to receive a passing outcome on two of the three Step 2 CS subcomponents: Communication and Interpersonal Skills (CIS) and Integrated Clinical Encounter (ICE). There will be no change to minimum passing requirements for the Spoken English Proficiency (SEP) subcomponent of Step 2 CS at this time.
These changes will be applied to Step 2 CS examinees testing on or after January 1, 2013.
