When your ability is very close to the passing standard, the computer continues to give you items until the maximum number of items is reached. At this point, the computer disregards the 95% confidence rule and decides whether you pass or fail by your final ability estimate.
- If your final ability estimate is above the passing standard, you pass.
- If your final ability is at or below the passing standard, you fail.
