Recent studies show that during the five-year period from 2010 to 2015, nursing programs that adopted ExamSoft increased their NCLEX pass rates by 12% on average. But once pass rates improve, what next steps can nursing schools take to ensure continual success and produce the best nurses possible?
More than 250 nursing schools worldwide use ExamSoft to deliver formative and summative teacher-made exams that not only measure student learning, but provide real-time, detailed analytics to educators. With the ability to “tag” exam questions to specific learning objectives or competencies, ExamSoft can aggregate assessment data immediately, providing both educators and students with an understanding of performance on different objectives—whether they’re based on course, programmatic, or even accreditation standards.
By using these assessment methods continually, nursing education programs become armed with the information needed to best help their students. Educators can revise questions, update curriculum, and implement faculty development processes—all based on data gathered from teacher-made exams and aggregated by ExamSoft.
If your program is already tracking student progress with solutions such as ATI or HESI, we’re not here to persuade you to abandon a good experience—in fact, 83% of our clients use one of those two platforms along with ExamSoft. They found that using our platform to deliver teacher-made exams enables them to better track student progress throughout the semester than by simply using the spot checking of ATI or HESI alone.
Whether your nursing program is rocking NCLEX pass rates or looking to continually improve their performance, how do you take the next step with your assessment process? ExamSoft’s embedded assessment platform can provide the insight your educators need to help guide exam item revision, curriculum review, and even collect the data you need to ease the accreditation process. By creating a complete culture of assessment, you’re ensuring that your program is continually creating the best nurses possible.
