TEAS test: Does the program average and rank refer only to your school?
- 0May 12, '10 by •M♥J•The program mean refers to the average of the adjusted individual scores of everyone who took the test for your particular program type. This does not mean your program at your school, it means all RN programs if you registered as an RN test-taker (all LPN test takers if you registered as an LPN student, etc...). Also, I don't believe it literally means "all" because they would only take a large sample during a given amount of time. They wouldn't compare yours to tests taken 5 years ago.
- 0Mean - National:
The national mean is the average of the
adjusted individual scores of all test takers
(within a specified sample from the ATI data
pool) for this assessment. The national mean
includes all program types.
Mean - Program:
The program mean is the average of the
adjusted individual scores of all test takers of
your program type (within a specified sample
from the ATI data pool) for this assessment
within a specified time.
- 0The difference is that national mean is including all program types, not just the program you're pursuing, according to where you took the test.
If you took the test at a community college that offers the ADN, the program mean would be all those who recently took the TEAS for ADN programs.
The national would be all those who recently took the TEAS for any program type, ADN, BSN, etc.
