Presented by Desiree Hensel, PhD, RN, PCNS-BC, CNE, CHSE
Thursday, Nov. 17, 2022
11 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.
Starting April, 1, 2023, the new national council licensure exam known as, Next Generation NCLEX, will introduce new item types and polytomous scoring methods using 3 different scoring rules. As faculty start to include partial scoring methods into course exams, they will need to use methods for conducting post-examination reviews appropriate for partial scored items.
