Portland, OR—Over 40 architects from across the country gathered in July and September to begin shaping the next version of the Architect Registration Examination®—ARE® 5.0. As volunteers on the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB) Test Specification Task Force, the architects recommended content areas and assessment objectives for the proposed divisions; aligned assessment objectives to the knowledge, skills, and tasks identified in the 2012 NCARB Practice Analysis of Architecture; and weighted the importance of each content area and assessment objective.
