Score Release

Last Updated: November 2022

National Board Certification and Maintenance of Certification are standards-based assessments. Your certification component scores reflect the degree to which assessors were able to locate clear, consistent, and convincing evidence that you have met the National Board Standards specific to your certificate area. When scores are released, candidates receive results for each component attempted, as well as information on how to interpret their feedback statements, and next steps.

Your Maintenance of Certification results reflect whether assessors were able to locate that you, as a Board-certified teacher, provided sufficient evidence of growing professionally and maintaining a positive impact on student learning. When results are released, National Board Certified Teachers receive a decision of whether they have successfully demonstrated they are maintaining their certification, as well as next steps.
