As stated in the NCHSE press release in September 2013, “The partnership with Precision Exams will enable NCHSE to enhance the health science assessment to better meet the different learning styles and sets of knowledge for each student . . . .” NCHSE took the opportunity to improve some items for this year’s assessment.
