Platinum Tests is an online, mobile friendly computer adaptive testing program that delivers content constructed to help nursing students prepare for their NCLEX-RN® certifications.
The platform currently has over 3,000 objective based test questions written and reviewed by industry experts in Nursing. Test items are defendable and written at all cognitive levels as well as on a continuum (from easy to more difficult).
“Platinum Tests’ breakdown of NCLEX questions into the Test Plan Concepts is already deeper and more thorough than any other online question bank I’ve reviewed. Platinum Tests appears to have all the components of a Computer Adaptive Testing (CAT) exam, which is amazing and truly unique!”
– Kevin Pan RN, NCLEX-RN® Tester, KevinsReview.com
We integrated the architecture, technology, and experience acquired over 10 years with EMSTesting to release our test prep version for Nursing students. The full program, just like EMSTesting, allows for computer based standardized testing plus real computer adaptive testing that mimics the NCLEX-RN® examination!
We took the necessary steps to making sure that PlatinumTests nursing content is unique and defendable by all academic rigors. Each author was selected based on industry expertise, background, and was required to participate in a test writing workshop before coming on board. We allowed them to select the topic and objectives they preferred to write questions about. Every author was tasked to write the stem (the actual body of the question) and identify a correct answer first. They were then instructed to draft three plausible distractors and the rational for the best answer.
Finally, each test writer had to estimate the reading level of the stem, define blooms taxonomy level and cut score online. While there were no timesheets kept, new content creators and season experts sometimes took 10-60 minutes to create each question before it was reviewed by two editors for syntax and medical accuracy.
Instructors can create, administer, and grade tests online. They can also view, analyze and compare test results in our online grade book feature.
Along with comparing other students in the class or by national averages, instructors can view “Cut Score” averages, “Raw Score” averages, “KR20”, “Confidence Scores” and see most requested objectives for discussion.
The Platinum Secure Testing feature gives Instructors the option to lockdown tests on a students computer or iPad. The iPad Edition of “LockDown Browser” (available free from iTunes) enables a student to use an iPad to take exams that use Platinum Secure Testing enabled tests by instructors in PlatinumTests.
The Group Testing feature gives instructors the ability to select topic material, number of questions and more. Our system generates the test and delivers it to your class. The host reads the questions aloud! Students play the game using smart phones or tablets. The game keeps track of the scores on a leaderboard.
This easy to use program costs $80 (a one time fee) and includes unlimited computer adaptive tests (CAT) and free customer support!
Questions include: Multiple Choice, NCLEX SATA (select all that apply) & NCLEX Indentification.
Students can take instructor created static tests (if part of a school), and practice on their own for certification exams using our unlimited computer adaptive testing (CAT).
