Computerized Testing

  1. Hi All. I'm scheduled to take the entrance exam on Saturday, 3/1
    I've been out of school so long I don't even know about computerized testing. Can someone explain how this works? Are you allowed to skip some questions and then go back to complete them? Any other info or advice would be greatly appreciated!

    All of the computerized exams I have taken do not allow you to go back and redo the question...once it's answered, it's answered. If you can operate your home PC, you'll do fine on the test. Just listen to and follow the directions.

    Good luck!

    Suzy, if you're taking the nursing entrance test, you won't be able to go back and change or skip over questions. They're usually timed too.

    I would familiarize yourself with fractions, decimals, converting percentages to fractions, basic algebra, etc..

    I was out of school for 12 yrs and had to do a refresher myself. Good luck

    I was just going to say, all of the nursing courses we have to take at my school are computerized. On the day of the test we go to a computer lab with our instructor and take our exam over the internet. After you're done, you immediately get to see your raw score, then the instructors get together and statistically evalaute the exam and then you check back in about a day or two and get your final grade. It's pretty different. I'd never taken an exam that way. They really push the technology thing here at my school. We get homework assignments and study guides off the internet too.

    When you are sitting for your test after you read the answer and questions several times, think about it. There may be a couple of answers that may be right. You need to chose the answer that BEST fits the question. Use your critical thinking skills, and evaluate.
    Good luck!
