MOCK EXAM INFORMATION
A mock examination will be offered at the conclusion of each of the first three days of the course (Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday afternoons). Each exam will consist of 100 multiple choice questions. The exam content will closely follow the NCCPA Blueprint for the PANCE/PANRE. If you are not familiar with the blueprint, please go to http://www.nccpa.net for more information.
Attendees will have the option of taking the examination at the conference center or completing it at home (or in your hotel). For those attendees who choose to remain at the Conference Center, you will only be permitted to remain in the building until 7:00 pm. Each set of 100 test items should be completed within 100 minutes which is similar to the NCCPA test taking time parameters. Attendees will not be monitored while taking the exam. It is strongly encouraged that the examination be taken individually in order to provide each attendee with an accurate assessment of his or her knowledge.
Answer keys will be distributed upon receipt of your completed scantron sheet. The key will contain answers to all questions including descriptions regarding both correct and incorrect responses. A list of references will also be distributed for those students wishing to review the concepts further to help guide exam preparation.
In order to have the examinations scanned and analyzed, all answer sheets must be submitted to the course faculty no later than 8:00 am the next day. Individualized analysis will be provided to all attendees who submit the answer sheets as requested. The analysis will include percentage of correct responses and a breakdown by topic area and by skills area. For further explanation of topic and skills areas, please refer to http://www.nccpa.net
