Changes to the 2012 exam will include:
Five to four sections – This modest structural change will better align the content of the L.A.R.E. with current practice. For full details on the structure of the new exam and the equivalency between the current and new exam, please view the L.A.R.E. Transition Chart.
Full computer based testing – By December 2012 all four sections will be delivered by computer to improve relevance, reliability, and accessibility. For additional information on the computerization of the current graphic sections, please view the Frequently Asked Questions.
