Interim Interpretive Guide for New SEE- (for examinees ON or AFTER 9/1/2016)

The NBCRNA launched the NEW Self-Evaluation Examination (SEE) on September 1, 2016. The revisions to the SEE involved:

  • Adoption of the National Certification Examination (NCE) content outline for question development
  • Reporting scores on the four NCE knowledge domains:
    • Basic Sciences
    • Equipment, Instrumentation and Technology
    • Basic Principles of Anesthesia
    • Advanced Principles of Anesthesia
  • Lengthening the examination to 240 total questions with a four-hour time limit

The information contained in this guide is intended to provide assistance in interpreting test takers’ scores arising from the new reconfigured SEE. Students and Program Administrators may use these instructions to compare SEE performance using the data tables contained within this guide. This guide should only be used for interpreting scores from SEE administrations on or after September 1, 2016.

Please note: this current interpretive guide does not include an entire year’s worth of data, but only summarizes performance for the test takers who were administered the new SEE in September 2016. This interpretive guide will be updated intermittently, as additional performance data is accumulated through August 2017.
