Benchmarking across all relevant areas, for each nursing student, is critical to enable focus on the areas which need it most.  With Kaplan, your faculty will have detailed insight into each student and cohort’s topic knowledge and NCLEX®-specific elements.

These tests are important because they assess students’ recall and understanding, in addition to their analysis and application skills. Like the real NCLEX®, these benchmark tests include all question types— standard multiple-choice, multiple response, fill-in-the-blank, ordered response, hot spots, chart/exhibit, audio, and graphic options.
