Education and Examination System


Organizational Structure of the Education and Examination Committee

The Education and Examination (E&E) Steering and Coordinating Committee oversees the basic education program of the SOA. Within this overall committee, two separate committees operate. The Education Committee is responsible for the selection and development of the study material for the SOA basic educational programs. The Examination Committee is responsible for the development and grading of the examinations. Both of these committees report to the General Chairperson. Each of these committees has its own Chairperson and several General Officers. The E&E Committee operates under guidelines set by the SOA E&E Management Committee.

The Education Committee is responsible for determining the content of the Course of Reading and learning objectives. Input and suggestions for improvements may come from many sources, including the SOA Staff Fellows, the individual examination committees, Education Committee members, Sections and Practice Areas, the general SOA membership, academics, and candidates.

The Examination Committee consists of several individual examination committees, each responsible for specified examinations. Each examination committee develops and is responsible for the initial review of all of the questions to be included in its examinations. The committee recommends the pass marks for its examinations.
