Clinical Judgment Exams provide pre-developed, high-quality assessments with a Clinical Judgment focus for RN nursing programs nationwide. Created by our NurseThink® team of testing experts, these exams are powered exclusively by ExamSoft®, the leading educational assessment software company in the world.
Integrated across the curriculum, faculty and students use the Strengths and Opportunities reports to make focused/just-in-time decisions for remediation, learning, and readiness for practice. Now your nursing program can have the support to teach students the necessary learning outcomes to become safe and effective nurses, with timely performance feedback that allows them to reach graduation, pass NCLEX®, and launch successful careers.
Our Clinical Judgment Exams are developed by teams of experts in nursing and education. These experts in assessment work with professional nurses and nursing faculty to ensure each question has a solid Clinical Judgment focus. Item types include multiple choice, multiple response, graphic, chart exhibit, hot spot, rank order, and calculation. Unique Electronic Health Record scenarios are included throughout to increase realism and Clinical Judgment focus.
Clinical Judgment Exams offers multiple assessments for each specialty and subject. Each assessment includes results in cohort- and student-level reports to assess Clinical Judgment at all levels. The Strengths and Opportunities Report provides detailed information on each individual student and a Summary Report is provided for aggregated cohort performance. Performance data also demonstrates learners’ percentile rank compared to a national sample of students taking the same exam.
All content from Clinical Judgment Exams is categorized in accordance with NCLEX® and QSEN so every student performance report highlights specific individual strengths and weaknesses. Additionally, every question includes rationale to help provide detailed guidance for remediation strategies to improve student success.
Take advantage of pre-written assessments that accurately gauge student learning and competency. Category-based reporting at the program level and student level measures students’ true mastery of concepts against a national cohort of nursing students. To help ensure nursing students are on track for practice readiness and NCLEX® success, each content area includes three distinct assessment types: Benchmark I, Benchmark II, and Open Check.
Every instructor knows writing professional-level nursing exam questions is difficult and time consuming. That’s why each content area of Clinical Judgment Exams pre-written assessments include content that instructors may use to supplement their own exam questions to help improve assessment and instruction. These questions are securely uploaded and saved in the client’s ExamSoft database for use at the instructor’s discretion.
The Core solution covers seven distinct subjects, each including three expert-written assessments: Benchmark I, Benchmark II, and Open Check.
The Comprehensive solution provides all the content in the Core solution and includes an additional seven subjects. Each subject will be assessed via Benchmark I, Benchmark II, and Open Check assessments.
Each subject includes a build-your-own question bank with 60+ items that mirror the quality of the benchmarked assessments to supplement instructor-authored content.
ExamSoft works with clients to ensure a consistent exam experience that preserves benchmark validity and protects the security of all exam questions. Benchmarked assessments are coordinated and scheduled by ExamSoft on behalf of clients, defining the assessment settings and providing faculty and students with the information they need to proctor and complete the exam.
With Clinical Judgment Exams, students have access to the ExamSoft Strengths and Opportunities Report that allows them to address their own personal need just in time to make a difference in their program. Each student and cohort report are mapped to key professional areas, so remediation is meaningful, efficient, and completed in an effective way. Every exam item is developed using the Clinical Judgment model proposed by the National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN) at the application and analysis level.
