When I take practice exams on evolve for the HESI, how do I know what percentage matches with a passing score of 850? Im ranging about 55% on the comprehensive exams. Our school says 850 is about half, but I know hesi grades weird. Anyone know how Im about to tell?

Welcome...hope on of our savy students can answer your question.

There is really no way to tell you that xx% would result in 850 or higher.. the way that HESI grades is that harder questions are weighted more that easier questions.. thus 2 students taking the same exam could get the exact same number correct and incorrect on the exam and receive different scores because of the difficulty of the questions that they got correct... also remember that HESI puts questions on the exams that are not being scored but rather evaluated for validity and you will not be made aware of what those questions are.
