AANP scores weighted?


Mar 22, '12Well according to Leik, each question is 1 point. May be ANCC is weighted but I don't think AANP.

Mar 22, '12I read that too. It just doesn't make sense if there is a 700 point difference between 100800 for the AANP. I think they changed their test since the Leik book was printed. I was reading the handbook for the AANP and it kind of hinted towards weighted scores but, it didn't come out and say it directly.

Mar 22, '12True !! It makes sense what you're writing.
So, to make 800 points out of 135 Q if it is not weighted...each question is worth 5.925 rounding up to 6 points per question.
I have broken down the math this way: out of 135 Q, you must answer 100 correctly if unweighted. If it is weighted than, its pure luck you may pass answering less than 100 Q (if you answer more hard weighted question right) or you may have to answer more than 100 (if you keep missing hard weighted question and answer simple question). Its just luck, I guess. But to be safe, one must answer 100 (may be a must) to be on borderline pass or fail and there's this thin red line above or below 100th question !! 
Mar 22, '12I came up with the same math when I did it that way earlier. So around 6 points each. 100 out of 135 is a very narrow margin. I think I liked the NCLEX better. Lol I might just call and ask them tomorrow.
