  • Description
  • Objectives
  • Presenters
Standardized exams are administered in many nursing programs as a program benchmark for the prediction of student success. Many times, the exam outcomes are not maximized to their fullest potential. This webinar will explore the integration of best practice standards in selecting, administering, and analyzing results of standardized tests. Additionally, the employment of a testing committee will be explored as a means of using a quality improvement process for testing within the nursing program.
  • Describe various ways that standardized tests are used in undergraduate nursing programs.
  • Identify similarities and differences in custom versus generic content-specific tests.
  • Discuss methods for using aggregate student scores from standardized tests to evaluate the effectiveness of the curriculum.
  • Discuss how a testing committee can be employed to advise faculty on testing product selection, administration practices, post-test review procedures, and testing policies used across the program.
