In the Fall of 2020, the NREMT began introducing TEIs, or technology enhanced items, into the national registry exam.

These questions will be posed in a way that indicates to the participant to “select x correct responses” among a list of choices. While there may be additional changes within the theme of technology enhanced items, your primary adjustment for tests this year should be preparing for the possibility of being asked multiple response questions. In August, the NREMT sent out a memo to provide clarity on what this change in question format...

OnVue is an alternative option for test-takers to take the NREMT cognitive exam from your home or office, instead of an in-person testing center. This exam is still proctored through PearsonVue. The change to expand to online proctoring was primarily decided with the limited test center availability due to COVID-19.

So, you just sat for the NREMT exam and now you are in the waiting game--what’s next? As you may have noticed, once your computerized test ended, it didn’t tell you whether you passed or failed! Regardless of whether your test kicked you out at 75 questions or 124 questions, there is no way to tell for sure whether you passed or failed the NREMT exam at the time of completion.

However, there is a much faster and more efficient way of seeing whether you passed or not!
