We are frequently asked about the pass rate for our review courses. This led us to develop a process to determine the pass rate for our exam prep courses.
In order to give our clients an accurate number and to be consistent from course to course, we designed a short survey that is sent out 90 days after the last day of a course to those clients that COMPLETED the course. To receive a Certificate of Completion, clients are required to complete the following list of items within 30 days after the course end date:
- Listen to each of the lectures (participate live or review recorded lectures).
- Score 70% or higher on all homework assignments.
- Score 70% or higher on the Bowen EHS final exam.
(Clients who do not meet the above completion requirements will receive a certificate of participation.)
90 days after the course end date, we determine the participants who completed all of the above requirements. An email is sent with a link to the survey and a follow-up email is sent a week later to those that may not have had a chance to complete the survey. We then reach out a week later via phone as one last attempt to get participants to complete the survey.
We then tally the results of those who completed the course and responded to our survey.
We also ask those who did not sit for the exam, “Why?” and how many hours and months they spent preparing.
Finally, the results are posted as a news item on the Bowen EHS website.
