Using ATI Data to Make Informed Decisions

Using ATI Data to Make Informed Decisions

In this session we will discuss current research examining the use of ATI products and their impact on student, faculty and nursing program outcomes. For example, we will discuss the atiSECURED research study evaluating the score comparability between traditional computer based testing and iPad testing across a variety of different item types. We will also discuss research examining the impact of using the ATI Complete Partnership package on student, faculty and nursing program outcomes. As well as other current research such as Next Generation NCLEX to inform product usage and making decisions about student nursing competency.
