Certified Medical Administrative Assistant CMAA,Implementation Strategies continued. HOW TO USE THE MATERIALS, Administer the first online practice assessment EDUCATOR. A certification candidate s first attempt on the practice assessment should be done toward the end. IMPLEMENTATION,of the program GUIDE, Data suggests the first practice assessment should be administered 10 to 50 days prior to the. certification exam date, Give certification candidates ample time to review any content areas that provided challenges on the. practice assessment, As the practice assessment mirrors the certification exam in length and format it is recommended to. disable the rationales for a certification candidate s first attempt. Direct certification candidates to use the study guide. The study guide provides a review of core subjects on the national certification test plan. The study guide may be used as supplementary material throughout the course but leveraging. these resources in a closer proximity to the exam date data suggests within 2 weeks can help keep. tutorial content fresh in the certification candidate s mind. Administer additional online practice assessments, The last practice assessment should be administered in close proximity to the NHA certification. exam date Data suggest within 5 days, Administering the last practice assessment close to the NHA certification exam can keep the. candidate more engaged as well as reduce test anxiety through increased familiarity with the. exam format, As a candidate may attempt each practice assessment twice ATI Allied Health advises administrators. leave at least 10 days in between practice assessments encouraging the use of Focused Review. between attempts, Additional attempts can help mitigate test anxiety but upward movement in scoring especially. when practice assessments are taken in very close proximity to one another may not indicate. increased exam readiness but rather could be a result of answer memorization. Leverage reporting tools to assess certification candidate s learning. Administrators can use ATI Allied Health s reporting tools to identify trends at the candidate. class program or institution level to determine content areas that appear to present certification. candidates with the greatest challenges and then provide additional support and training on. these topics,RECOMMENDED TIME,Study Guide with Case Studies 6 hours.
