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, Clinical Judgment Exams provide pre-developed, high-quality assessments with a Clinical Judgment focus for RN nursing programs nationwide.
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, extended multiple response, hot spot, rank order, calculation, matrix multiple choice, matrix multiple response, drop-down cloze, and drag and drop. Next Gen NCLEX (NGN) item types accompany stand-alone trends and unfolding case studies. 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 aspects of the Clinical Judgment Exams are categorized in accordance with professional standards to include NCLEX® and QSEN so every student performance report highlights specific individual and cohort strengths and weaknesses. Additionally, every question focuses on clinical judgment so that remediation strategies can improve student success in school, on NCLEX®, and beyond. VALIDITY STATEMENT
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 includes 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 100 items, including Next Generation NCLEX case studies and stand-alone items, that mirror the quality of the benchmarked assessments to supplement instructor-authored content.
