Post Exam Administration

After the examinations have been administered, NPLEX follows an extensive post-test process to ensure that the items on which the examinee’s results are based are fair, valid, and reliable, and that cut scores have been set to appropriately discriminate between the examinees who have met the criteria and those who have not. The post-test analysis (PTA) process involves the NPLEX staff psychometrician, psychometric consultants, ND staff, biomedical and clinical exam chairs, the NPLEX Board, and other ND volunteers.

Due to this comprehensive effort, it takes several weeks to complete the scoring process.
