Frequently Asked Questions:

The ATI TEAS, Version 7 will launch on June 3, 2022

All institutions will be automatically switched to the new blueprint. This will be done with little disruption to clients via a seamless process on the backend.  To aid with the transition, we’ve provided a helpful Transition Toolkit for institutions to prepare. We are also providing additional support to TEAS registrants.

Additional service hours have been added from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. CST on Saturday, June 4 to aid in a seamless transition for schools testing on that day.

In addition, ATI has implemented a testing black out period on June 3, 4 and 5 for registrations taking place on ATI’s website to ensure this transition has minimal effect on test takers.

The exam will continue to have 150 scored items with 20 pre-test items. Refer to the comparison table above or in the Executive Summary + Content Specifications for the full breakdown.

Yes – Because we are maintaining scale continuity between blueprints, institutions who use the ATI TEAS Cut Score Analysis Tool will be able to keep their current cut score.

Since ATI TEAS, Version 7 will include updated national means, institutions that use national means as a cut score in their program admissions policies will need to be revised. Learn more here: Cut Score Info Sheet

Each time we update a blueprint, we have the opportunity to change the underlying statistical scale that produces reported scores or to keep that underlying statistical scale the same through the content changes.

Based upon empirical evidence, including a data analysis of TEAS assessments as well as judgments from content experts familiar with health science fields and TEAS content, ATI has decided to keep the statistical scale the same for ATI TEAS, Version 7. This means that the scores for ATI TEAS (2016 blueprint) are comparable to scores on the ATI TEAS, Version 7 (2021 blueprint) and your admissions criteria can remain the same. Scale continuity will make score use, interpretation, and longitudinal tracking easier for TEAS users.

It is up to the institution to determine the length of time they will accept transcripts for students who tested prior to June 3, 2022 without having students retest.

ATI TEAS, Version 7 will continue to be reported as adjusted percent correct scores, (for example 58.7%).
