TEAS V Assessment Test

Madison College utilizes the proctored, online TEAS V assessment test to place students into various health care programs such as Nursing and Veterinary Technician.

Register for the test and get additional information from ATI. You will need to create a free account in order to register. To ensure your test results are received by Madison College, please include your seven-digit Madison College student ID number and your date of birth. You will also need to pay the $81 fee for the TEAS V assessment using your debit or credit card on the ATI Testing website at least twenty-four hours prior to your test. The actual testing must be done on site in the testing center. A valid photo ID is required.

If you have a disability and require testing accommodations, complete the testing accommodations reservation form.

Preparation
  • Prior to taking the TEAS V, students are encouraged to use ATI resources and consider purchasing TEAS V preparation products. All products can be purchased individually or in packages.
  • You can take the TEAS V when you are prepared to do so. You will need to check your program admission requirements to ensure the TEAS V is completed prior to the applicaiton deadline.
Results
  • Log into the ATI websitechoose My Profile and Proctored Assement to view your test scores.

  • Madison College has determined individual program benchmarks. Refer to your program admission requirement sheet to determine your results.

  • Look for the adjusted individual total score. This is your composite score.  Your adjusted individual score for each category will be indicated below. Your scores are valid for 4 years.  

  • If your scores do not meet the program admission requirement, you can study the Topics to Review information provided by ATI prior to scheduling another TEAS V test. You can receive support from the library or the Student Achievement Center at our college.

  • You can retake sections of the TEAS V. To raise a composite score, you will need to retest the entire TEAS V. If you met the composite score, you only need to take the section you didn't meet the adjusted individual score. There isn't a limit to how many retests you can take, however, you will be assessed the $81 fee for each retest. You are encouraged to wait a minimum of two weeks.

  • If you have taken the TEAS V at Madison College, the scores are automatically in your student account. If you have taken the TEAS V at a location other than Madison College, you need to submit and official transcript from ATI to the college.
