The Chancellors Office has approved the application from the Assessment Technologies Institute for the TEAS V(5.0). Based on the recommendation of the California Community College Nursing Advisory Committee and an independent psychometrician, the cut score for TEAS V(5.0) has been set at 62% Adjusted Individual Score. Note that although this cut score is lower than what had been used in the past, the new test is more difficult and the cut score to be used in California is higher than the national cut score of 57.
All incoming students Fall 2012 will be required to take TEAS V(5.0).
The TEAS was developed to measure basic essential skills in academic content area domains for Reading, Mathematics, Science, and English and Language Usage. These entry level skills were deemed important for nursing program applicants by a panel of nursing program curriculum experts. The TEAS is a 170-item, four-option, multiple-choice assessment.
