The Step 2 Committee is scheduled to assess the minimum passing score for the USMLE Step 2 CK examination at its meeting on June 9, 2010. In its review of the minimum passing score, the Step 2 Committee will consider information from multiple sources, including:

Results of content-based standard setting exercises conducted with two independent groups of physicians in 2010;
Results of surveys of various groups (eg, state licensing representatives, medical school faculty, samples of examinees) concerning the appropriateness of current pass/fail standards for Step examinations;
Trends in examinee performance;
Score precision and its effect on the pass/fail decision.
The decision of the Step 2 Committee will be posted at the USMLE website. If the Committee determines that a change is appropriate, the new recommended minimum passing score will become effective for all examinees who take a Step 2 CK examination on or after July 1, 2010.
