Sounds like you have more complete information than I do, Mommy_XO....which got me worried about my own TEAS score.
However, when I called CSU East Bay again to reverify which score they used, I was told again that the "compsite score" was the base score and that they only look at the "percentile rank-program" score.
At CSU East Bay, the TEAS is worth 40 points (50pts for GPA, 5 for work-in-industry, 5pts for another language). Given that my "percentile rank program score" is very high and should give me close to 40 points, I don't feel compelled to retake my TEAS....that's if I'm being given correct info from the advising staff at CSU East Bay Nursing Office.
You sound very knowledgable Mommy_OX, and if what you are saying is true, that the CSU system actually uses the composite score. Then, I should defintely retake the TEAS to get that composite score as high as possible.
I've just spent a whole semester retaking my Englishes and Stats just to move B's from my old degree into A's, so I'm not about to lose points over a four hour test!
I wish I could remember my log on ID to ATI...as I remember a page that specifically detailed what each of these scores mean. And, from this definition page, it was fairly easy to tell which score the nursing programs
are most likely to use. I'm curious where you (Mommy_XO) obtained the info that the CSU system uses the "composite score?"
Please let me know if anyone has more info. I thought I had the whole TEAS thing checked off my list of things to do....and now I am not so sure.
At any rate, I'm not going to get myself worried about it now. I need to study for finals (and am obviously finding other things to worry about....displaced anxiety maybe). I have until Spring to retake the TEAS if I have to. Hopefully I won't have to though.
Good wishes to all.
