NCAS does not use a pass/fail system. Instead, the NCAS Performance Report indicates a candidate's competency strengths and gaps. NCAS measures behaviours and competencies against those of a Canadian-educated health practitioner who is expected to demonstrate upon entry to practice in relevant provinces.
NCAS prepares a single CBA and SLA Performance Report that blends the results of all of the components for professional assessments.
Read Interpreting your NCAS Performance Report for information on how to understand your report.
Following are sample NCAS Performance Report templates for each profession:
NCAS checks assessment scores carefully before we release your Performance Report. If your Performance Report does not reflect how you performed during the assessment, you can request a reconsideration of your SLA results. NCAS does not allow reconsideration of the CBA results. If you encountered an incident while taking the CBA that requires review, you must contact us within three business days of your CBA to resolve.
Once you request a reconsideration of your SLA, assessors who did not score your original assessment view the recorded videos of your SLA scenarios to confirm that we scored all the skills you demonstrated. We then issue you a new Performance Report that combines your original CBA scores and your final SLA scores. You can request only one reconsideration; all reconsideration results are final.
A CDN $350 fee will apply. This fee covers the administrative costs and assessor time involved in your reconsideration.
To request a reconsideration, complete this form and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org (British Columbian candidates) or email@example.com (Maritime Canada candidates) within 15 days of receiving your Performance Report. We cannot conduct reconsiderations after these 15 days have passed. Typically, it takes NCAS 21 days to complete a reconsideration from the requested date.
