New Examination Analysis

On April 1, 2017 the Board of Behavioral Sciences (Board) and the Office of Professional Examination Services (OPES) determined it was necessary to initiate a supplemental examination analysis for the following exams:

  • LMFT Clinical (LMCE)

To ensure validity, a statistical analysis of a certain number of completed examinations is required before examination results can be released. The analysis may take approximately six to eight weeks to complete, at which time the Board's examination vendor, Psychological Services, Inc. (PSI), will mail official score reports to applicants.

The Board recognizes the inconvenience, and is working diligently with OPES and PSI, to ensure prompt analysis.

  • LCSW Law & Ethics (LCLE) Passing score: 35

Scores for this examination will now be provided to applicants at the examination site.

On April 24, 2017 PSI will mail score reports, to all applicants who tested between April 1, 2017 and April 20, 2017. Please allow two weeks for mailing. Applicants who do not receive scores by May 5, 2017 can contact PSI to request a duplicate copy.
