What is the Test of Essential Academic Skills?

The Test of Essential Academic Skills is a pre-admittance test administered through the Assessment Technologies Institute (ATI) Nursing Education. Excelsior College asks prospective students to take the TEAS in order to evaluate their academic aptitude for a nursing program.

The TEAS takes about 209 minutes—four hours—to be completed. It is a multiple-choice exam, where students are asked to choose the right answer among several alternatives. Although the TEAS exam is long, it does not go beyond the material usually studied in a high-school program.

Questions posed on the Test of Essential Academic Skills cover the following areas of studies:

Reading - You will be presented with several passages from texts, which you will be required to read and understand. You will need to pay attention to key ideas elaborated in these passages as well as to their various stylistic and structural details. The test measures how well you can process new information delivered in words and takes 64 minutes to be completed.

Mathematics - You will need to solve various mathematical problems, performing such basic calculations as adding, substracting, multiplying, and dividing. You will work with full numbers, percentages, and fractions. It is a 54 minute, multiple-choice test that evaluates how well you know algebra and interpret mathematical data.

Science - You will need to answer questions on human anatomy and physiology. Limited to 63 minutes, this test estimates your scientific reasoning and your knowledge of physical sciences.

English - You will need to demonstrate your knowledge of standard English language, including your understanding of its grammar, punctuation, and the connotation of words. You will be given 28 minutes to complete this part of the test.

Even if you were an exceptionally good student at school, you will need to revise several subjects before your examination at Excelsior College. Why not do revisions with our thoughtfully prepared tutoring resources? JobTestPrep has brought together materials that will hone your knowledge in all required areas. Practice with our exclusive PrepPack™ that contains tests, detailed study guides, and answer keys and become admitted to study at nursing school at the college.
