Expanding computer-based testing

To improve exam security and uniformity as well as convenience for member boards and examinees, NCEES is continuing to transition its licensing exams to computer-based testing (CBT).

The focus on CBT was central to all exam development committees this year, as NCEES added exams to its CBT lineup. The development committees for each of the 24 PE exam disciplines, including the 16-hour SE exam, have been working toward this goal since the Council voted in 2012 to move all Principles and Practice exams to CBT.
