Am I ready for CNE exam??

  1. I jus took the self assessment test provided by the NLN.
    I got 71%. I do not know the passing score.
    Is there any one who knows the passing score of the CNE exam?
    Is 71% on the self assessment test ok???

    I am getting so nervous about the test. I read review books and have practice questions.
    I do not know if I can prepare for this test any differently.

    I would appreciate any advises.

    I wish I could remember what I got on the self-assessment, but it was over a year ago. I'll tell you that I passed the exam without any faculty experience (now I am an adjunct but at the time I wasn't). I didn't think the exam was too bad, but I tend to do okay on tests.

    I remember looking at a detailed test blueprint on the website and then taking the self-assessment. After that, I knew there were some areas that I should go back and study. For example, I knew from the blueprint that there would be some item analysis questions and we had discussed that only briefly in my master's program. I still had access to a lot of my grad school textbooks, so that helped.

    As I understand it, there's no set minimum score on the actual exam because there are multiple versions of the exam in circulation at any one time, so it's a fancy psychometric calculation that determines the passing score for that test form.

    Good luck to you!
