NCEES Seeks Surveyor Volunteers For Fundamental Exam Study
NCEES is seeking 13-15 volunteers from across the nation who are licensed professional surveyors or surveyor interns to participate in a standard-setting study for the Fundamentals of Surveying (FS) exam. To qualify, volunteers must have taken and passed the NCEES FS exam.
The standard-setting study will take place July 27–28, 2012, in Atlanta, Georgia. Travel and lodging expenses will be paid by NCEES. Selected volunteers will review and rate the difficulty of items that will be included on the updated FS exam, which will be administered as a computer-based exam beginning in 2014. The volunteers’ responses will help NCEES determine the passing score for the FS exam.
To volunteer, complete a short online questionnaire at ncees.org/FSstandards.
