BETA TESTING OPPORTUNITY INFORMS HEALTH SCIENCE CLASSROOM INSTRUCTION
“You can’t manage what you can’t measure!”
Feeling overwhelmed with delivering all your health science content? Are there questions on how well students are retaining health science knowledge during the pandemic? Do you wonder how best to prepare students for the end of semester finals? The NCHSE beta testing opportunity is your answer! Beta testing for students will end on June 1, 2021. Our goal is to prepare the new exams and have certificate opportunities available for the 2021-22 school year.
The new exams are designed as end of course assessment certificates and align to the NCHSE health science curriculum: Foundation of Healthcare Professions, Essentials of Healthcare Practices, Human Structure, Function and Disease A and Human Structure, Function and Disease B. Four Course Curriculum
Beta testing validates the assessment(s) for functionality, usability, reliability, and norming of test scores. The beta testing opportunity allows you to test your students’ knowledge of health science at no cost and also inform your classroom with the resultant test data of student knowledge of each national health science standard. National Health Science Standards
Please note that student scores do not reflect grade scale since there is no cut score at this point in time. Students can take more than one certificate exam based on their health science knowledge as determined by their health science teacher. Beta testing is available now through June 1, 2021 with the goal of over 500 test takers per course certificate.
Prior to participating in the beta testing, health science teachers are required to complete a short webinar outlining the benefits of the testing and the validation of the assessments, how to access the assessment certificate data per National Health Science Standard, how to apply the overall student data to inform classroom instruction and how to register for the exams. Assessments will be facilitated by YouScience previously known as Precision Exams.
