Assess the numeracy skills that underpin safe practice.

The Healthcare Numeracy Assessment (HNA) module extends the scope of our widely used Foundation Numeracy Assessment (FNA) module to incorporate 20 core areas of healthcare numeracy that underpin and inform the safe practice of a wide range of nursing proficiencies and clinical procedures.

HNA makes it easy to assess your learners' capability to develop the numeracy skills required to meet programme outcomes and provides a platform to support them in continuously developing their abilities in numeracy throughout their studies.

ASSESS UP TO 20 CORE AREAS OF HEALTHCARE NUMERACY

  • Addition
  • Subtraction
  • Multiplication
  • Division
  • Negative Numbers
  • Fractions
  • Decimals
  • Percentage
  • Ratio
  • Equivalences between fractions, decimals, percentages
  • Conversion between SI and other measurement units
  • Conceptual problem solving
  • Formula & Equations
  • Rounding of Numbers
  • Estimation
  • Indices & Logarithms
  • Calculator Use
  • Measurement
  • Interpretation of tables, charts and graphs
  • Statistics

When scheduling a HNA for your learners, you can choose to include as many or as few of the skill domains in any HNA assessment providing the utmost flexibility in terms of learner or curriculum requirements.

ASSESS ENTRY LEVEL CAPABILITY

HNA features a POINT OF ENTRY assessment format that's designed to provide an accurate and thorough baseline assessment of the 20 essential mathematical skills domains.

Identify your learners' strengths and weaknesses in mathematics right from the outset and better plan their support and development needs to help them progress successfully through the programme.

SUPPORT COMPETENCE DEVELOPMENT AND ASSESSMENT PRIOR TO REGISTRATION OR LICENSURE

HNA features a POINT OF REGISTRATION assessment format that's designed for formative and summative diagnostic assessment of nursing numeracy competence in authentic nursing practice contexts.

Assess your learners' competence development at key progression points throughout the curriculum and at the point of registration.

NUMERACY PERFORMANCE FINGERPRINT

HNA provides a unique NUMERACY PERFORMANCE FINGERPRINT (NPF) for each of your learners that lets you easily and quickly visualise their areas of strength and weakness across the 20 numeracy skill domains.

Within the NPF each block represents an assessment item (3 per skill domain) and colour-coding differentiates between correctly and incorrectly answered questions.

Drill down into each assessment item to see the learner's answer to each question and how that answer compares to the expert solution.
