Test of Essential Academic Skills
The TEAS assessment correlates with early nursing school success and consists of four sections: Reading, Mathematics, Science and English Language and Usage. Furthermore, results on the assessment are classified in five categories according to the individual’s overall level of academic preparedness vital to facilitate the learning of nursing content. Per considerable research, individuals achieving an overall score of Proficient (the middle category and the St. Elizabeth – University of Saint Francis standard) or higher on the TEAS or ATI TEAS exhibit a moderate-to-high academic preparedness to learn nursing content. Likewise, individuals achieving an overall score on one of the two categories lower than Proficient exhibit low levels of preparedness to learn nursing content.
