Scroll to page 25 to get (reformatted):Computer-Adaptive MPJEWhat is the MPJE ?

The MPJE is based on a nationally uniform content blueprint, with questions that are tailored to assess the pharmacy jurisprudence requirements of individual states. In cooperation with participating state boards of pharmacy, the MPJE is uniformly developed, administered, and scored under policies and procedures developed by NABP’s Advisory Committee on Examinations and approved by NABP’s Executive Committee.


Computer adaptive mpje what is the mpje l.jpg

Computer-Adaptive MPJEWhat is the MPJE ?

The content of the MPJE is approved by boards of pharmacy, practitioners, and educators from around the country through their service as MPJE Review Committee members, item writers, and board of pharmacy representatives.


What is the mpje l.jpg
What is the MPJE ?

All candidates are tested on their mastery of pharmacy law as outlined in the MPJE Competency Statements (page 22). Each participating state board of pharmacy approves those questions that are specific to the federal and state laws of the jurisdictions in which candidates are seeking licensure. Candidates must take a separate exam for each state or jurisdiction in which they are seeking licensure.


What is the mpje10 l.jpg
What is the MPJE?

The MPJE is a two-hour, computer-adaptive examination that consists of 90 multiple-choice test questions. Of these, 60 questions will be used to calculate the test score. The remaining 30 items serve as pretest questions, and do NOT affect the MPJE score.


What is the mpje11 l.jpg

What is the MPJE?

Pretest questions are administered to evaluate items’ difficulty level for possible inclusion as scored questions in future exams. These pretest questions are dispersed throughout the exam and cannot be identified by the candidate.


The computer adaptive format l.jpg
The Computer-Adaptive Format

A computer-adaptive exam is inherently different from a paper-and-pencil exam. Like many other tests, the goal of a computer-adaptive test is to measure a candidate’s knowledge and ability. The test selects questions for each candidate based on his or her unique ability level. When you take the MPJE, the computer’s technology will assess your answers before presenting you with the next question.


The computer adaptive format13 l.jpg

The Computer-Adaptive Format

An estimate of your ability level will be determined based on the difficulty level oft he questions you have answered correctly. This determination of the difficulty level will then be used to calculate your MPJE score.


The computer adaptive format14 l.jpg
The Computer-Adaptive Format

Please Note:

Because the computer-adaptive MPJE presents questions to you based on your responses to previous questions, YOU CANNOT CHANGE ANANSWER ONCE YOU HAVE CONFIRMED ANANSWER CHOICE OR GO BACK AND REVIEW AQUESTION ONCE YOU HAVE MOVED ONTOTHE NEXT QUESTION.


The computer adaptive format15 l.jpg
The Computer-Adaptive Format

Remember, the computer-adaptive format of the examinations requires that ALL test questions be answered in the order in which they are presented. Examination questions are selected for you based on your answers to previous questions. You will NOT be allowed to skip a question or return to a previous question to review your answer. Once you have confirmed an answer choice and have moved on to the next question, you CANNOT return to the previous question to change your answer.


The computer adaptive format16 l.jpg
The Computer-Adaptive Format

You must answer ALL questions in the order in which they are presented, and you may NOT skip a question. Your formal education, training, practical experience, and self-study prepare you for the MPJE.


The computer adaptive format17 l.jpg
The Computer-Adaptive Format

The MPJE has been designed to assess how well you apply your knowledge, skills, and abilities to evaluate situations involving the applicable federal and state laws and regulations that govern the practice of pharmacy in the state in which you are seeking licensure.
