Lesson Learning Objectives: Part 2

Accommodate
Early Adapters to Late Adapters


From: Mastrian, McGonicle, Mahan, & Bixler, 2011

Change Management Cont.

Every 3 years the National Council analyses of entry-level nurses. Test plan content reflects the
knowledge, skills, and abilities required for safe and effective practice of on the entry-level practitioner.
Test questions are written by practicing nurses based on what entry-level nurses should know.
A different panel of practicing nurses reviews the new questions to ensure accuracy.
All questions are pretested in order to meet statistical criteria before being used as score-able items
(National Council for State Boards of Nursing, 2013)


NCLEX Content Derivation

No time limits for individual questions
Minimum of 75 questions and a maximum of 265 questions
Includes 15 pretest questions that are not scored. They help determine the item’s difficulty level so that it may be included in future tests
Maximum testing time is 6 hours, with an average time of 2.5 hours.
An optional 10 minute break can be taken after 2 hours with an additional optional 10 minute break after an additional 1 ½ hours testing time. 

(National Council for State Boards of Nursing, 2013)


Time and Question Limits

Computer adaptive testing (CAT) adapts to your knowledge, skills, and ability level
Question sequence is determined interactively:
Every time a question is answered, the computer re-estimates your ability based on previous answers and the difficulty level.
 The next item the computer selects is one that you have a 50% chance of answering correctly.
With each answer, the computer’s estimate of your competence becomes more exact.

From: National Council for State Boards of Nursing, 2013
