Prior to taking an Integrated Test, please review the following recommendations to help ensure a successful testing experience with Kaplan.
Once logged in students should avoid:
  • Hitting the backspace key. Tests are designed to move from one question to the next without going back to change answers. The backspace key will quit the test.
  • Leaving the test site before completing the test, or attempting to open any other websites while testing. This could cause the test to be submitted and scored before the student is finished.
  • Refreshing the page. If there is a script error, or if the Internet goes down, close the browser window, log in again, and resume the test.
  • Submitting a test before completion with the “Quit” button. This will immediately close and score the test.
  • Using the radio buttons on the browser tool bar. All testing functions should be accessed from the icons within the program for best results. Since the screen is modeled after the NCLEX®, using the program buttons will give you great practice for the real thing.

If the internet loses connectivity for any amount of time, then you should be able to continue your test from where you left off. Log in again, click “Available Tests” in the green box. You should be able to click, “Resume” next to your test to continue where you left off. If you are unable to resume your test, it will need to be reset. Please see your proctor or faculty to assist with this process.

To View Your Results:
When the test is completed, click on “review results.” Click on “review” to view the online remediation explanation for each question.
