9780323031028: Mosby's 2005 Unsecured AssessTest

Trusted by faculty and students for more than 25 years, Mosby's AssessTest helps nursing students prepare for the NCLEX-RN® examination by assessing their knowledge and abilities and predicting their probability of passing. It consists of 265 questions that closely simulate the format and content distribution of the latest NCLEX-RN test plan. Students receive a personal analysis of their individual strengths and weaknesses in the areas of client needs, critical thinking, nursing process, and clinical area, with their performance ranked against that of a national norm group. The unsecured version allows students to take the AssessTest and receive results at any time of the year, whereas the secured version mails results only after April 1.

  • Predicts the probability of passing the NCLEX-RN examination based on AssessTest performance, allowing students to evaluate their readiness for the Boards.
  • The AssessTest follows the latest update to the National Council's NCLEX-RN test plan percentages to closely mimic the distribution of content students will encounter on the Board exam.
  • All questions are nationally field tested to ensure validity and quality.
  • Alternate test item formats - such as fill-in-the-blank, multiple response, priority order, and illustrated questions - prepare students to answer test questions in the formats that currently appear on the NCLEX-RN examination.
  • A computerized analysis reports on individual test performance in the categories of client needs, nursing process, critical thinking, and clinical area.
  • An institutional profile for groups of 10 or more summarizes performance in the same categories as the individual profile and helps instructors evaluate group strengths and weaknesses.
  • Compares individual and group scores to BSN, ADN, and Total RN national norm groups so students and faculty can determine how performance ranks among peers.
  • An emailed PDF version of the institutional profile is available in addition to a hard copy, enabling schools of nursing to receive their institutional results in a shorter time period.
  • A table comparing scores from the 2005, 2004, and 2003 tests enables faculty to evaluate the curriculum and consistency of student performance.
  • A roster of students' individual scores, percentile rankings, and an item analysis of missed questions helps faculty identify students in need of special assistance
  • A critical thinking/professional decision-making classification includes subcategories of critical judgment, legal and ethical accountability, and managerial responsibility (to include delegation), to parallel content featured in the latest NCLEX-RN test plan.
  • Test results are mailed along with a booklet containing correct answers, question classifications, and rationales for correct and incorrect answer options so students may continue to use the AssessTest as an ongoing study tool.
