How do I test?

◦ Audio Digest provides you with a Pre-test to gauge your baseline level of knowledge on the lecture material and a Post-test to gauge the level of knowledge gained from reviewing the lecture material.

◦ All tests utilize a multiple-choice format. Read each question carefully, and choose the correct response (multiple-choice, A through D). Once you have selected a response for each question, click on the Submit button at the bottom of the test page.

◦ About the Pre-test.

• Open the Pre-test tab (located in the display bar directly below the audio control bar) prior to listening to the lecture.

• The pretest may be taken only once, since it is meant to determine your “pre-knowledge” of course material. This test is recommended as a fundamental part of the learning process.

• After submitting your answers, you will see the following results: your score, which questions were answered correctly and which were not, and the percentage of other test-takers who answered each of the questions correctly.

◦ About the Post-test.

• Open the Post-test tab (located in display bar directly below the audio control bar) only after completing all components of the lecture-activity (including review of the written summary and suggested reading).

• The post-test is mandatory if you wish to earn CME/CE credit for the lecture-activity.

• A passing score of ≥80% is required, but you may retake the test as many times as necessary to earn a passing score (Note to CRNAs: The posttest may only be completed and submitted once due to the testing mechanism utilized by Audio Digest. See Accreditation section for more details).

• Select the Save button if you want to pause the test before submitting your answers. When all questions have been answered, select the Submit button. As in the Pretest, you will see your score, and which questions were answered correctly or incorrectly. Note: Tests for activities that are also designated for "Maintenance of Certification" may include additional feedback such as rationale statements and suggestions for further reading.

• When you pass a posttest, you will see your score as well as the number of credits you have earned. You will be directed to proceed to the Evaluation tab to complete the activity.

I've listened to lectures on CD. How can I find the tests?

◦ CD subscribers can locate tests by clicking on CD Testing from your Dashboard. This will generate a listing of all available tests (based on the issue title and publication date), and their current status (eg, Not Started). Select the test that corresponds to the CD you just listened to, and follow the instructions listed, starting with your attestation that you have followed the steps required for accreditation. See above for testing instructions.


How do I earn CME credits or CE credits/contact hours?

For more information, see the CRNA portion of the general Accreditation section.
Where are the test questions and how do I complete the pre- and post-tests?

Test questions are located on the last page of the written summary, and are used for both pre- and post-testing. To submit a test for scoring, participants must follow Steps 2 (pre-test) and 5 (post-test) in the online process, or utilize printed test/evaluation forms. Participants complete the pretest before—and the post-test after—listening to the audio and reviewing the written summary.
