    Has anyone heard about what's going on in Kansas? Apparently, 15 or 20 UMKC students failed WREB by Kansas' scoring requirements, so they repealed the ruling and let them all get licensed!

    Dunno, the Kansas state website says you only need passing scores on the WREB (or any regional licensure exam), so I'm not sure how the students passed the WREB but failed to meet the state's qualifications.

    I just checked the site; it now says:

    At the May 9, 2008 meeting the Kansas Dental Board rescinded its prior decision to place a restrictive 75% section score stipulation for the WREB examination, and will now accept the WREB scoring system results, without stipulation, for Kansas licensure. Kansas accepts the results of all regional clinical testing services for Kansas licensure.
