Objective: The purpose of this study was to analyze effects of nursing programs’ progression policies stipulating achievement of a minimally-acceptable benchmark score as a graduation requirement on the Health Education Systems, Inc. (HESI) Exit Exam (E2) on students’ mean E2 scores. Design: A comparative design was used to study the effects of benchmarking-for-progression policies on students’ mean E2 scores. Population, Sample, Setting, Years: The sample consisted of responses to a questionnaire by 186 RN program directors who administered the E2 to 7,156 students in academic year 2001-2002. Concept or Variables Studied Together: Comparisons were made of students’ mean E2 scores in programs that employed E2 benchmarking-for-progression policies with scores in programs without such policies. Methods: Analysis of variance (ANOVA) and frequencies were used to analyze the data. Findings: Mean E2 scores were significantly higher (p Conclusions: Findings indicated that use of progression policies resulted in improved E2 mean scores. Weighting the E2 score as a portion of the final capstone course grade was effective in increasing mean scores, but significantly (p
