Test For Essential Academic Skills (TEAS)
SB 1309 allows community colleges to utilize approved diagnostic assessment tools prior to enrollment in the nursing program. EVC uses the Test for Essential Academic Skills (TEAS). For additional information on the TEAS, visit https://www.atitesting.com/Solutions/PreNursingSchool.aspx
ATI completed a norming study on the New TEAS exam. Due to student success data, the recommended cut score is 62%. Based on the recommendation from the State Chancellor's office, the EVC Nursing program will no longer accept TEAS test version 3.0 or 4.0 with cut scores of 72% or higher, effective the October 2011.
EVC requires a qualifying score of 62% on the TEAS 6th edition or New TEAS.
