New score report format – USMLE Step 1 and Step 2 CK examinations

Posted: January 16, 2019

A redesigned version of the USMLE Step 3 examination score was implemented for examinees testing on or after October 1, 2018. The new format is now being implemented for the Step 1 and Step 2 CK examinations. Examinees taking Step 1 and Step 2 CK on or after January 15, 2019 will receive the new score report.

The redesigned report features a chart showing an examinee’s performance compared with recent first-time takers from US and Canadian medical schools, the examinee’s performance in individual content areas relative to their overall Step examination performance, and information about the allocation of items across each content area.

You can view the new score report here. Click on the comment boxes for explanatory/informational text. FAQs about the score report are also available.

The USMLE program solicited feedback on the new design from a number of stakeholders, including examinees, medical school faculty, and residency program directors.

A new score report format for the Step 2 Clinical Skills (CS) examination is under development.
