Professional entry-to-practice examinations serve an important gatekeeping and public-protection role in our society. The outcome of such an exam can be life-changing, both for the candidates who take the exam and for the people who will ultimately be served by those candidates (e.g., a nursing candidate and their future patients). In this webinar, Dr. Scott Cassidy will take us “behind the scenes” and explore the science and statistics of examination standard setting.
