    BICEP Bonus Points

    For organizer only:

    Due to the fact that the quality of judging is directly related to the quality of these classes, organizers will be rewarded accordingly. Organizers of classes that do exceptionally well on the exam will be rewarded with bonus points on the following point schedule:

    • Class Test Average
    • 70% = 1.0 point
    • 65% = 0.5 point

    Example:
    • 10 take exam
    • Scores are 82, 68, 63, 75, 72, 59, 61, 64, 58, 81
    • Total of scores = 683 (of 1,000 possible)
    • Average score roughly 68%, so 0.5 bonus point awarded.

    BICEP Organizer Point Retroactivity

    In our opinion, leading these BICEP courses is the SINGLE MOST important aspect of the CEP program. Without adequate primary education, continuing education lacks purpose and focus. Therefore, the organizers should be rewarded for their effort.

    Retroactivity will be instilled for BICEP courses due to these facts:
    • We have extensive records of tests that were given,
    • The class leader is nearly always the exam proctor and
    • If the class leader was not the proctor then the tasting proctors can vouch for the BICEP leader.
