Practice Examination Updates

The Conference is pleased to announce updates to the Practice National Board Examination (PNBE) and Practice State Board Examination – Arts (PSBE). The updates to the practice examinations will include two forms for the Arts section and two forms for the Science section of the PNBE, and two forms of the PSBE. The forms will have 75 multiple choice items each and will be statistically representative of the examination. At the conclusion of the practice examination, candidates will receive a score report reflecting their performance and general feedback on content areas in which candidates answered items incorrectly. This feature is designed to give candidates a clear picture of the areas of strength and weakness in preparing to take the NBE/SBE.

The updated practice examinations will continue to be administered through Pearson Vue’s online platform and previously purchased vouchers will still be valid. Each form of the practice examination will be $60. The target date the examinations will be available for administration is March 23, 2018. Please note all Conference-produced study material (including the practice examinations and study guides) are optional.
