Word Problem Skills: This assessment focuses on word-problem skills preparation for licensure examinations & pre-employment testing.

  • Figure 1a illustrates a word problem and multiple choice question answer option format; the assessment also provides typical “fill in the gap/blank” question formats.
  • Figure 1b illustrates feedback for a MCQ format question, with diagnosis of an incorrect answer.
  • Figure 1c illustrates an authentic ‘scaffolded’ facility that supports interpretation, discrimination, extraction, equation set-up & calculation of essential numerical information embedded in word-based problems. The use of analogous authentic clinical features of the word-based problem (authentic medication orders & medication containers and labels etc) supports understanding of the context and key information required to solve the word problem.
