Expanding the Use of Technology
In 2016 Touchstone Institute pioneered the use of tablets for nurse examiners to score performance for the Internationally Educated Nurses Competency Assessment Program (IENCAP). This November, our Item Management System was fully integrated to deliver the MCQ portion of this exam as well. Altogether, 113 tablets were used for this exclusively tablet-based IENCAP, administering and recording all aspects of the exam electronically. We are fast approaching our goal of incorporating tablet-based scoring for all of our programs. Goodbye paper!
