On July 31, 2017, the State Bar of CA released a standard setting study of the pass line for the CA Bar Exam. The study was discussed at a joint meeting of the Committee of Bar Examiners and Board of Trustees’ Admissions and Education. This is in follow up to a previous study that showed a steady decline in CA bar exam pass rates that could not be justified when compared to the pass rates reported by the other 49 states.
Due to the outcry that the CA Committee of Bar Examiners’ bar exam scoring practices lack justification and result in unfair test results, the CA State Supreme Court announced that it will assume the responsibility to score the bar exam effective 2018. The State Supreme Court amended the CA Rules of Court to give it the sole authority to set the passing score on the CA bar exam, a function previously exercised by the Committee of Bar Examiners.
