In addition to the number of examination items specified, a small number of five to ten “pretest” questions may be administered to candidates during the examinations. These questions will not be scored and the time taken to answer them will not count against examination time. PSI claims The administration of such non-scored experimental questions is an essential step in developing future licensing examinations.
