Before they lose access to an internet connection, they can download their quizzes for offline access. Once they get back online, their questions and answers will sync.
In-Depth Analytics include:
Answer Response Time lets users know how quickly they need to move to get through all questions. This metric is available for individual questions, subjects, and quizzes.
The BoardVitals app Peer Rank metric shows users how they compare to their peers who are currently using BoardVitals to study for the same exam.
Comprehensive evidence-based explanations are augmented with Peer Comparisons so users can see exactly how other users answered the same question, with percentages for each answer choice.
The performance timeline allows users to see a visual representation of their performance over time, or drill down to only examine a particular date range.
Users can custom their quizzes in several different test types, including the new untimed test option. The four test types are:
Study Mode – Study mode is similar to an open book quiz without a time limit. In this quiz environment, users can read the explanations as they go and practice at their own pace.
Test (Timed) – To quasi-simulate the pressure of a test environment, Test (Timed) Mode allows users to study without revealing the correct answers and explanations until the quiz has been completed.
Test (Untimed) NEW! – Test (Untimed) Mode is like taking a closed book quiz without the pressure of a time limit. Answers and explanations are not available during the quiz.
NCLEX® CAT TESTING MODE (NCLEX® question bank access only)
For NCLEX® students, users can choose to practice in a Computer Adaptive Test mode (CAT). Computer adaptive testing adjusts to their abilities – providing them with either an easier or harder question depending on how they answered the previous question. Now, not only can your nursing students create a full-length CAT exam, they can also pick the exact subject breakdown of it, including by body systems and dimensions. This gives users the power to focus on topics where they need improvement, or boost their confidence in their strongest subjects. Available for BoardVitals NCLEX® question bank subscriptions only.
