ABPANC is pleased to provide this opportunity to take an online practice examination at a time and place of your choice. The practice examinations are tools to assess your strengths and weaknesses regarding your perianesthesia knowledge base. The multiple-choice questions are similar in form and content to the types of questions seen on an actual CPAN® or CAPA® certification examination.
After each question, you will learn if you answered the question correctly and the reference information supporting the question will be displayed. You will have 3.3 hours (200 minutes) to take a practice examination. You will have a second opportunity to review the reference information at the end of your examination so that you do not need to stop after each question to look up the answers in the reference.
The score report that you will receive at the conclusion of the practice examination will provide you with a second chance to review the reference information for each question. The score report will also include feedback about your performance on the practice examination. You will receive a scaled score on overall performance, just like with the actual CPAN® and CAPA® certification examinations. The passing scaled score is 450. You will also be provided with domain level feedback. Such feedback may be used to focus your study efforts as you design a study plan.
Practice examinations are a tool to assess strengths and weaknesses. They are not intended to serve as a study guide nor should they be used as a substitute for studying. Success on a practice examination does not guarantee success on the certification examination. That is, a passing score on the practice examination does not guarantee a passing score on the actual CPAN® or CAPA® certification examination.
