NCLEX Question About Computer Shut Down At 60

Updated | Posted

Specializes in graduate Nurse.

Hi guys

Under the new NCLEX rule if the computer shut you off at 60 question does it mean that you answered 50 question right or you only answered 25 question right. How bad is that the computer will shut you off at 60? Please kindly advice. So nervous and tired of taking NCLEX. I studied and I reviewed most material in the website LOL. Is this a bad news if you remember 5 question and you checked and you really answered the wrong answer.

Also this not fair, you will study all month and NCLEX will ask question from different area. SMH

I hope I pass honestly just tired of testing.

If it shuts off at 60, it just means that the computer determined with 95% accuracy that giving you any more questions would not change whatever result you got. There is no way to know how many you answered right or wrong. Generally speaking however, when it cuts off at the minimum, you have either done really well or really not-so-well.

It is normal to leave thinking you have done terribly, and failed. I think most people leave that way. But many find out they in fact passed. I think very few people walk out feeling confident. So try to relax and wait for your results.

Right or wrong answers aren’t necessarily the determination of passing. Questions are written both above and below passing standard. Correct answers to questions below the passing standard don’t really lead to passing- you must correctly answer questions at/above the passing standard.

There is a level of competence one must demonstrate. Some questions are written below the required level of competency. Even if those questions are answered correctly, it does not help with passing because they do not show that the minimum competency has been met.

Bloom's taxonomy (educational theorist) discusses low order and high order levels of questions. Low order questions include ones that are merely memory or regurgitation of facts. Higher order questions require one to read a scenario and react to it (apply their knowledge).

For example, let's say we had questions about blood pressure. A low level question would be "The patient's blood pressure is 75/55. What term describes the patient's condition?" You would then select hypotension. A higher level question would be something more along the lines of "The patient's blood pressure is 75/55. The patient has an order for IV metoprolol. What action should the RN take?" This would be where you would hold the medication and notify the provider.

Thank you so much for sharing this illustration and I think every test taker should be aware of this. the first 15 question matters alot if you are aiming at stop at 60 question

Did u do Pearson cue trick sorry to hear that

The NCLEX shut off on me at 60 questions yesterday at 1pm 😒. I thought I did well but the questions seemed easy. I did the PVT 2hrs and 4 hrs later. I got the bad pop up. That just destroyed my confidence. Now I'm devastated. It's literally been 16 hrs at this point and I have a long 32 hrs to go before I have definitive results.
