How are scores on the Performance Dashboard calculated?

The Performance Dashboard allows you to view your progress as you study. Performance statistics are based only on quizzes taken in a Test Mode (Untimed, Timed, or for NCLEX users, CAT).

Your question bank score is determined not by your practice exam scores, but by your accuracy rate across each subject in your question bank. Your Performance page displays your score for each of the subjects in your question bank, and the Overall Performance displays an average of your subject scores. This method of analyzing scores by subject allows you to break down your strengths and weaknesses by content area so that you can study more efficiently and effectively.

Each question bank will appear as its own table in your Performance tab, with the subjects for which you have answered questions displaying as individual rows. If there is a subject you have not yet begun, the subject name will not appear in your Performance table, nor will questions from the subject be included in "OVERALL" calculations.

PERFORMANCE BY SUBJECT: See how you’re doing in each subject you have begun answering questions from, with the ability to view your Overall score, Correct/Incorrect/Unanswered Questions, and Average Response Time. Filter A-Z, or by your highest or lowest scoring subject.

Overall Performance: Percentage of questions you have answered correctly out of questions attempted

Peer Rank: Score of where you stand in comparison to other BoardVital's users who have studied the same question bank.
