    Would be nice but partial credit often doesn't count in the real world for which school is supposedly preparing the student.

    I opened the airway and we started compressions but, oops, forget to maintain c-spine via chin-lift...

    Sometimes this is an all-or-nothing gig and, while I don't like SATA anymore than does anybody else, I still think that they are appropriate.

    The one thing I REALLY hate about SATAs is when there's only one correct answer. OK, technically a SATA could have only one correct response of the lot and still be a SATA, yet we are all so conditioned to look for 2 or more correct answers since that's what they usually have. I had a nursing teacher who'd occasionally pull that on us on tests...and had no mercy when people got it wrong.

    So now I've learned that when it comes to SATA, just pick whatever correct answer(s) there are and ignore how many of them get chosen.

    Uhg, they are miserable. They're more manageable if you treat each option as its own true/false question.

    Ah, these were the bane of my existence in nursing school. Then when I took the NCLEX I almost died when about half of my questions were SATA.

    In the end though, the fact that we practiced with SATA questions in school really did help prepare me for the "big test."
