New release - HOBET V (07-Oct-2010)
ATI Allied Health is proud to announce the release of the new Health Occupations Basic Entrance Test V (HOBET V). HOBET V is a multiple-choice assessment of basic academic knowledge in reading, mathematics, science, English and language usage.
The HOBET V includes objectives that 206 allied health educators nationwide rated as important for applicants to have mastered. Therefore, you can be confident that the content of HOBET V is based on objectives that are appropriate and relevant in measuring the academic preparedness of allied health program applicants. HOBET V is considered an excellent predictor of early allied health program success as it helps educators gain advanced knowledge of the content strengths and shortcomings of incoming students. We are confident that you'll be very satisfied with HOBET V. It is a 209-minute, 170-item assessment consisting of questions in reading (48), mathematics (34), science (54), and English and language usage (34). Twenty of the 170 questions are unscored (pretest). The HOBET V test plan link below contains the objectives the test is based on, along with sample questions:

Note that normative data (means and percentile ranks) are provided for three groups of allied health program types. A committee of allied health educators from around the country grouped these programs based on their academic similarities. Normative data is available for both total and subtest scores and can be used to compare the performance of students who apply to programs in the same category.
