Testing is a complex subject area. We’ve spent some time this year explaining the basics of Cut Scores and Exam Validity to help EMS educators ensure the tests they’re administering provide good evidence of the student’s knowledge.
There are many ways to construct an exam. You can use short answer questions, fill in the blank questions, multiple-choice questions, true/false questions, essay questions: the possibilities are endless! When it comes to grading that exam, some questions have a single correct answer and some are graded on the accuracy and quality of the response.
We are very excited to announce the release of a brand new comprehensive exam for paramedic students: the Paramedic Readiness Exam 4 (PRE4).
The PRE4 is a multiple choice summative exam which is designed to prepare students for the challenges of a state or national certification examination.
