    Test of Essential Academic Skills (TEAS)

    The Test of Essential Academic Skills (TEAS) is a 3.5-hour computerized scholastic aptitude assessment that helps predict those students with the highest likelihood of academic success in nursing.
    The TEAS is required for admission into the nursing program at ISU for all undergraduate students except students applying to the RN to BS track.
    The TEAS consists of four content areas: math, reading, English, and science.
    All subtests contain multiple-choice items with one correct answer.
    The Math subtest covers whole numbers, metric conversion, fractions and decimals, algebraic equations, percentages, and ratio/proportion.
    Reading covers paragraph comprehension, passage comprehension, and inferences/conclusions.
    The English subtest measures knowledge of punctuation, grammar, sentence structure, contextual words, and spelling.
    The Science portion of the exam covers science reasoning, science knowledge, biology, chemistry, anatomy and physiology, basic physical principles, and general science.
    The test will be administered in the computer lab on second floor of the nursing building (unless otherwise noted on testing schedule. Be sure that you have tested your Sycamore login and password in a public computer lab to make sure you can log in to the network.

    If not in the area you need to find your own proctor to administer your exam. A passing overall score is 70% or above and you need 60-70% on the subscales to meet the minimum requirements.

    I hope this helps.....
