New Question Types on the TEAS 7

On the TEAS 6, multiple-choice questions were the only type of questions you were given. This has changed on the TEAS 7. The TEAS 7 features four new question types in addition to multiple-choice:

  • Multiple-Choice: Multiple-choice questions provide four answer choices, with only one option available to select as the correct answer. In addition to text, some questions include charts, exhibits, and graphics.Multiple-choice question example
  • Multiple-Select: Multiple-select questions provide four or more answer choices, and more than one answer choice may be correct. For these questions, a prompt appears, asking you to “select all that apply.” To correctly answer a question, you must select all correct answers. If you select any incorrect answer choices and/or do not select all of the correct answer choices, that question is scored as incorrect; no partial credit is given.Example of a multiple-select question
  • Supply Answer: Supply answer questions do not provide answer choices. Instead, the question asks you to “fill in the blank” or to simply answer the question provided. Words and numbers are both acceptable as answers.Example of a supply answer question
  • Hot Spot: Hot spot questions provide an image containing between two and five clickable areas. You must click on the area of the image that correctly answers the question.

  • Ordered Response: Ordered response questions require you to correctly order a set of given responses. Each question provides between four and six responses, and you must drag each option from a box on the left to a box on the right. If any response option is out of order, the entire question is scored as incorrect; no partial credit is given.

Practice for the TEAS the Best Way

How to Study Effectively

When studying for your TEAS test, you not only want to set aside plenty of time, but you also want to be sure that during that time, you are studying in the most effective way.

How can you know if your study time is effective? Well, one of the best ways to ensure your time is being used effectively is by taking a free TEAS practice test. Practice tests allow you to gauge how prepared you are for the actual test.

Taking a TEAS sample test will also show you exactly which areas are your weakest, which can help you know which areas to study further.

After you take a TEAS practice test, ask yourself the following questions:

  • Which TEAS questions did I miss?
  • Were there questions I was unsure of, even though I got them right?
  • Which questions were hard to understand and took the longest?

When you ask yourself these questions, it will help expose the areas that you struggle with the most so that you know which areas need more attention during your study time. It may also be helpful for you to pinpoint exactly why you struggled with specific questions. Did you find the material hard to comprehend? Were you unfamiliar with some of the words and their meanings? Should you spend more time practicing a specific type of TEAS question to familiarize yourself and build speed? Really try using these questions to uncover any limitations as you continue to work through the material.

Answer Explanations

TEAS practice tests also often contain portions that expound on each answer choice. These are known as answer explanations or answer rationales. While this is a great source of extra information, be cautious not to read through the explanation and, because it makes sense, assume that you understand the entire concept in depth. It may be that the explanation only expounds on a narrow portion of a very broad topic, so be sure to review and dig into each topic that the question is referencing until you have a comfortable grasp of it.

Comprehend Each Topic

Another reason to make sure that you have a thorough understanding of each topic is because the TEAS practice test is simply practice. If you try to rely on having the questions from the TEAS sample test memorized, you may be making things harder on yourself.

The odds that you have the exact same questions on your test are probably pretty low, so if you only know the right answers on the practice test, but you don’t know why each answer is the right answer, then you may not do as well as you hope. Thoroughly study each concept until you have comprehended it. This is the best way to guarantee success on the actual TEAS test.

Don’t Become Overwhelmed

Try not to overwhelm yourself as you study. If you jump into taking a practice test before even looking at the study material, this can cause you to feel discouraged.

Practice tests are meant to be taken after you have done the hard work of studying and are ready to test yourself on your ability to recall it.

The day that you take the actual TEAS test, you will be expected to be able to answer the TEAS questions, have mastered test-taking time management, and apply all the strategies that you have learned. That is a lot to expect.

Keep in mind that you aren’t just preparing for a one-time test; you’re preparing for your long-term future. That being said, be sure to pace yourself. If you do this, you will be ready on TEAS test day.

TEAS Practice Methods


Try using the following methods, as you begin taking practice tests:

  1. Remove Limitations. Try taking the TEAS practice test without time limitations, open notes, and with TEAS study guide in hand. Obviously, try not to depend on these resources but have them available.
  2. Time Yourself. When you take the second practice test, keep all of the same resources, but time yourself to practice learning how to pace yourself for the test.
  3. Simulate Test Day. After taking the first two TEAS practice tests, take every other practice test as if it is test day. Time yourself, eliminate all outside resources, sit at a desk, and pretend like you are at the actual testing facility. Do the best that you can to answer the questions correctly and in a timely manner.
  4. Keep Practicing. After you have finished simulating test day, keep practicing. The more you practice, the more comfortable and confident you will be on test day.

FAQs

To help you prepare for the exam, you’ll find answers to some of the most common questions about the exam listed below.

Do I need to bring a calculator with me?

No, a four-function calculator will be provided if you are taking an in-person exam. If you are taking the computer version of the exam, a drop-down calculator will be embedded in the exam.

How is the TEAS scored?

The good news is there is no defined way to “pass” the TEAS. Because the exam is used purely as an evaluative tool, meant to gauge how well you’ll be able to handle nursing school curriculum, what qualifies you as “passing” the exam is ultimately up to the programs you’re planning to apply to. You will have access to your scores within 48 hours of your testing date. As it stands, the TEAS splits its scores into sections. Each question category has its own score, as well as the test sections themselves, alongside one big score compiled from your scores on the test sections. Once your scores are released, they’ll go to your nursing program of choice.

When will I get my TEAS results?

Depending on the school, you will generally receive your TEAS scores as soon as you complete the exam. In some cases, you will receive your scores 48 hours after taking the exam. Contact the school or testing center to find out what their permissions are.

How long will schools accept my ATI TEAS 6 exam scores?

Because scores from both the TEAS 6 and TEAS 7 exams are equated, schools are just as likely to accept your TEAS 6 score as they are a TEAS 7 score. That is, if you have taken the TEAS 6, you should not have to also take the TEAS 7. For the most accurate information for your school, contact the school’s administration; they will provide you with the details you need to know.

How long will the TEAS 6 remain available?

The TEAS Version 6 exam will be available to take until June 3, 2022, at which point all schools and testing centers will implement the TEAS Version 7 exam. The TEAS 6 will not be available to take online or in person after June 3, 2022.

How many times can I take the TEAS exam?

How many times you can take the TEAS exam depends on the school’s requirements. On average, you are allowed to take the exam three times per year. How long you are required to wait between testing attempts will also depend on the school’s requirements.

How do I prepare for the ATI TEAS Version 7?

Whether this is your first time taking the test or one of several, we strive to provide you with all of the tools you’ll need to study to the best of your ability. This is why we have put together thorough resources to help you prepare; whether the online TEAS Prep Course, the TEAS test study guide, the TEAS practice tests, or the TEAS flashcards. We at Mometrix Test Preparation care about your success and want to see you progress toward the nursing career of your dreams.

Good luck, and study hard!
