This is historical information as the NCCER Pipeline Program no longer utilizes assessment testing:
This communication will explain how Pipeline Score Reports are read/interpreted differently than other assessment score reports.
Candidates for pipeline-related assessments must meet the cut-score for every individual topic area/covered task to receive a “Passing” result (even if the overall score exceeded the cut-score). Only candidates with a “Passing” result will receive NCCER credentials. If the candidate meets or exceeds the cut-score on any covered task(s), the result(s) will automatically be reported to ISNetworld and the Registry System.
NOTE: For Custom Pipeline assessments, even if all topic areas/covered tasks are passed, the overall result will read “Training Recommended” on the candidate Score Report. No credentials will be issued even if all the covered tasks have been passed. If the candidate meets or exceed the cut-score on any covered task(s), the result(s) will automatically be reported to ISNetworld and the Registry System.
