Wednesday, September 17, 2014 07:53 AM

The following section would be repealed.  Different language to "replace it" has been proposed elsewhere.

(a) All applicants shall take and pass Parts I, II, III, IV and Physiotherapy of the National Board Examination and the board's Jurisprudence Examination.

(b) The passing score on each part of the National Board Examination is 375. The passing score for the Jurisprudence Examination is 75%.

(c) Regular jurisprudence examinations for licensure shall be given during the calendar year at the discretion of the board. All examinations shall be conducted in the English language. The board shall set the date, time, and place of each examination.

(d) An applicant may not take the Jurisprudence Examination unless the applicant has successfully completed all parts of the National Board Examination which are required by the board.

(e) Examinees shall not be permitted to bring any books, notes, journals, or other help into the examination room, nor to communicate by word or sign with another examinee while an examination is in progress without permission of the presiding examiner and within hearing of a designated representative of the board; nor shall an examinee leave the examination room except when so permitted by the presiding examiner. Violations of this rule shall subject the offender to expulsion.

(f) A license shall not be issued by the board to any examinee who has been detected in a deceptive or fraudulent act while an examination is in progress.

(g) One member of the board or a designee of the board shall at all time be in the examination room while the examination is in progress and no persons except examinees, board members, employees of the board or persons having the express permission of the board shall be permitted in the examination rooms.

(h) When examination papers are delivered to the presiding examiner they become the property of the board or an agency designated by the board and shall not be returned to the examinee. All test papers must be retained by the board or an agency designated by the board to be preserved for a period of one year after final grading in order to allow an examinee the opportunity to request an analysis of such person's performance, which request must be made in writing. 

(i) Each applicant having a passing score must request from the National Board that a true and correct copy of the score report showing the results of each part of the National Board Examination be sent to the board.
