    Our school used the ati fundamentals test at the end of the first semester. I never used the practice test but I got 65% They called that level 1 which is a pass, of which level 3 was highest raking. A score of 70% puts you above the national average. That's actually a great Level 1 score. If you going to take the fundamentals test like my school does, then use the ATI book to study from, just find the correlating topics that were covered in class already.


    to check your score stats, go to the atitesting.com and login ...click the Results tab or GO to Results and It should show you a assessment report under Practice assessment tab just click the little page and you will see how you did compared to others in your program and nationally.

    A level 1 does not equal passing, only level 2 or 3.

    At my school, we had to get a level 2 to pass. So I always added a little more on top of the practice score to account to make sure I would get it. It accounts for nervousness, if the test is a little different, etc. It's like an athlete that practices to hit the mark every time, not just once. And when you practice, you work for a little higher target to account for unknowns.

    There's no such thing as a good level 1 score.

    Hummm...Below is grading criterion DIRECTLY from ATI. Anyways Level 3 level 1 none of it matters ATI is just a reference. Level 3 and level 2 means the candidate EXCEEDS expectations if they were to take the nclex today. Level 1 means MEETS minimum expectations for the Nclex. Anyways, ATI is just a gauge nursing schools uses and it has no relevance at the end of the day All that matters is passing the NCLEX. Even after taking the NCLEX it won't say on your license PASS at 75 or 265 questions. A pass is a pass.

    @ man-nurse2b, well it may not matter for you school, but it does for mine. You can not go on to the next semester with a Level 1. I guess different schools different rules

    Every school is different with grading. For us a level 1 score is between a 48.3%-63.2%, level 2 is a 63.3%-81.6%, level 3 is 81.7%-100%. In our whole class 25% scored below a level 1, 25% scored level 1 and 50% scored level 2. Not one person scored a level 3. They wanted a level 2 proficiency, but we can move forward into pharmacology with a level 1, however level 1 and below are required to take the ATI a second time to see if they can improve their score.

    Our program changed requirements, to move on to level 2 in the program and start the second year, you had to pass the fundamentals ATI with a level 2 score. The bumped out a bunch of students in the program, more than 1/2. Of the 40 to start, only 18 will move on. The rest are out.
