Ok. SO I just gave my first med-surg test online and the majority of the class scored between 70-75%. I thought I had prepped them well--I chose questions that are most practical to actual clinical practice. I made a study guide specifically targeted to the questions on the test, and in a review game I even had some of the actual test questions and answers.
They never really taught us in my MSN class how to decide what questions to throw out based on how many people got it wrong. I will look the questions and responses to see if there were traps that students fell into when answering or if they just did not understand the question.
Any guidelines on when to throw out a question--like if 75% or 50% got something wrong?
