Using Nursing Exam Data Effectively in Preparing for Nursing Accreditation
Recently, Ainslie Nibert, Assistant Dean and Associate Professor at Texas Women’s University’s College of Nursing – Houston Center, discussed how her program uses ExamSoft’s extensive assessment data to adequately prepare for accreditation in her webinar, “Using Nursing Exam Data Effectively in Preparing for Nursing Accreditation.”
The key takeaways from the presentation include:
1. Strengthen your programmatic outcomes as early as possible so that your data will be the best that it can be for accreditation purposes.
2. Be sure to have a strong systematic item analysis plan in place for teacher-made tests; it allows for consistent data collection.
3. Increase the proportion of Application-and-Above Bloom’s level items to produce data that evaluates whether your students are actually able to apply and analyze information.
The presentation gives insight into creating a systematic item analysis plan to support accreditation standards. Ainslie also shares how to approach recurring problems that may present themselves upon exam reviews.
"ExamSoft has helped nursing programs build robust analytics to demonstrate that they clearly meet accreditation standards.”
