A growing body of knowledge supports the use of Elsevier’s standardized HESI exams, as an admission criterion, throughout the nursing curriculum, and as a measure of students’ preparedness for the National Council Licensure Examination for Register Nurses (NCLEX-RN). Because of a plethora of research indicating that the HESI Exit Exam  (E2) is a valid exam—96.36%–99.16% accurate in predicting NCLEX-RN success, faculty often designate a benchmark E2 score that students are required to achieve. Students who do not achieve the faculty-designated benchmark score are required to remediate and retest with a parallel version of the E2 to determine the effectiveness the remediation and to reevaluate the student’s preparedness for the licensure exam. This study compared mean E2 scores of students who attended schools that attached consequences to E2 scores with students who attended schools that did not attach consequences to E2 scores. Based on data obtained from the Eighth Validity Study Questionnaire, findings indicated that E2 scores were significantly higher (p < .01) in schools that associated consequences with failure to achieve the faculty-designated E2 score, and E2 scores improved significantly (p < .01) between the first and second testing when remediation was required, rather than suggested.
