This report summarizes findings from an exploratory study of students who had access to prepU during their nursing program (practical/vocational nursing). This study is a follow-up to a broader set of studies in which we are investigating prepU usage in students preparing for the NCLEX-PN.Download
This paper presents an literature review of adaptive testing and learning as well as mastery-based learning methods. Research on use of online quizzing is also discussed.Download
In this short paper, we discuss how data from PrepU can be used to explore patterns between usage, mastery and student outcomes.Download
As part of the multi-pronged efficacy project investigating PrepU usage and subsequent impact on student learning outcomes and teaching practices, we conducted retrospective case studies in two nursing schools. Both schools use the HESI Exit Exam as part of an NCLEX preparation strategy and incorporated PrepU into their nursing programs.Download

But many educators struggle with just how to do that.Download
In order to determine the relationship between question difficulty level in the NCLEX-RN 10,000 and IRT analysis difficulty we calculated correlations between the IRT-determined difficulties and the question difficulties previously determined by the NCLEX-RN 10,000. This analysis used the top 100 NCLEX-10,000 items and 2,000 students’ worth of data.Download
