– A national leader in allied health certifications launches a new operational pilot –
National Performance Specialists (NPS) is excited to announce the upcoming launch of an operational pilot for the Certified Clinical Medical Assistant (CCMA) Certification. This pilot will allow NPS to collect data and test the exam questions to ensure the CCMA Certification is valid, reliable, and fair.
To participate in the operational pilot, candidates must take the CCMA Certification exam remotely and have adequate equipment, such as a laptop or desktop computer, a webcam, and a working microphone and speakers. The exam will be live remotely proctored, ensuring a secure and fair testing experience for all candidates.
During the operational pilot, candidates who take the exam will not initially receive an exam score. The pilot aims to collect at least 250 exam results to provide the psychometricians with enough data to determine the exam’s cut score. Once the cut score is set, NPS will administer the CCMA certification to the candidates that passed the exam. NPS will also provide scoring reports to all candidates who sat for the exam.
Candidates that still need to pass the exam will have the ability to retest.
The cut score will take approximately 3 weeks to be set by the psychometricians and subject matter experts once they have the data from the 250 exams. NPS aims to set the cut score before the Aug 31, 2023, deadline to apply for NCCA accreditation.
We at NPS are committed to ensuring that the CCMA Certification is a reliable and fair assessment of the knowledge, skills, and abilities required to be a successful Clinical Medical Assistant. The operational pilot is an essential step in this process, and we thank all the candidates participating.
We encourage all interested candidates to sign up for the CCMA Certification and join us in shaping the future of Clinical Medical Assistant certification. For more information on the CCMA Certification or the operational pilot, please visit our website or contact us directly.
