This longitudinal study was conducted to determine the accuracy of Health Education Systems, Inc. examinations in predicting associate degree nursing (ADN) student success. The Admissions Assessment reading comprehension examination was predictive of student success as measured by the study population's Mid-Curricular (MC) scores, and MC scores were predictive of Exit Exam (E2) scores. The E2 was 94.83% accurate in predicting the success of the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses. Findings of this study support the use of standardized testing within an ADN curriculum.
