Each End of Rotation exam consists of 120 multiple-choice questions. 100 of these questions are scored, and the other 20 questions are unscored pre-test items which are used to gather statistics. The exam is divided into two sections of 60 questions each.
Students have 60 minutes to complete each of the two sections. Time may not be carried over from the first section. Once a section is completed students cannot go back to any questions in that section.
Programs may choose to configure their exams with breaks in between the two sections. 5, 10, or 15-minute breaks are available.
Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Compliance
ADA accommodations are also available and may be added for individual students at the time exams are scheduled.
All End of Rotation exams require direct supervision by a proctor. A proctor is an impartial supervisor designated by the program to administer and monitor the exams. Proctors may include, but are not limited to, program administrative staff, faculty, and clinical preceptors.
