How often can a student or intern take the practice tests?
Subscribers have access to all full-length practice tests and simulated tests that they can reset and retake as many times as they would like within their subscription period.
How will students know if they are improving?
Students and interns have access to complete performance statistics for each practice and simulated test and all the pretest questions. Practice tests will be scored once a test is completed. Both instructors and students/interns can view progress reports to track improvement over time. Instructors can work with students and interns to review performance in each domain. eatrightPREP® will help identify an individual’s strengths and weaknesses in the exam prep material. Students and interns have used this feature to identify the areas where their performance needs improvement and spend more time reviewing these content areas before exam day.
Is there tech support available for eatrightPREP®?
Yes. For technical support issues, contact BenchPrep, our course provider.
What are some suggestions for how I can use eatrightPREP® in my dietetic internship program or class curriculum?
Assign pretest questions or full-length practice tests to be completed as homework assignments.
View historical reports of course engagement, which log when work was completed.
Ask students/interns to create an action plan for studying for the registration exam based on their performance in the course. eatrightPREP® will identify the domains where they are performing well or need improvement, so students/interns can plan how they will review the topics that need improvement.
Challenge students and interns to complete one practice test and one simulated test. Or, challenge them to complete all tests during their final semester!
Encourage students and interns to submit the questions they answered incorrectly to the program director to improve internship or course experiences for next year’s cohort.
Encourage students and interns to watch how their knowledge progresses over time by assigning them to complete the eatrightPREP® course as graduation nears. After taking an initial practice test, they will complete pretest questions to improve their knowledge. At the course’s mid-point, assign another practice test. A final set of prstest questions will be reviewed, and then a final exam!
Create a private discussion group on eatrightPREP® and invite your students to ask questions about the dietetics topics they found most challenging in the practice and simulated tests.
Are there any options for customizing the eatrightPREP® experience?
Pretest Questions can be set to Custom Practice or Category Practice, depending on preference. Category Practice presents randomized pretest questions by domain, but the Custom Practice feature offers multiple options for engaging with Pretest Questions, such as the following:
- Answering questions not yet completed
Focusing on questions that were initially answered incorrectly
Selecting a specific number of questions per domain category
Setting a timer for a preferred span of time
Choosing whether to display answers to pretest questions immediately or after the study session is complete
