There will be no change in the ATS state of a candidate's test attempt if the cutoff score is changed after the test report is processed. The change in cutoff score will come into effect only for tests which are attempted after the change is made.
For example, let's say that the current cutoff score is 50. Candidate A has scored 60 on the test and has been marked as "Qualified". If you change the cutoff score now to 70, then this will not affect the status of candidate A. Candidate A will still be marked as "Qualified". However, if Candidate B now attempts the test and gets a score of 60, he/she will be marked as "Failed".
You can set the cut-off score for a Test under the Test Score Settings page. Refer to the Score Settings for a Test topic for more information.
In the Candidates tab of a Test, you can use the options in the left pane to filter and view the Qualified and Failed Candidates list separately.
Example: Consider a Test with a cut-off score of 75 points. The Candidates tab lists all the Test Candidates and their statuses. Once the Candidates submit their Test, they are automatically marked as Passed or Failed based on the specified cut-off score of 75 points.
