The Health Education Systems, Inc. (HESI) Exit Exam (E2) was originally developed using sound educational principles. In an effort to ensure product quality and to scientifically address the development of new HESI testing products, these principals continue to be practiced today, thereby adding to the evidence-based testing science and significantly contributing to the scholarship of educational practice. This review sequentially presents the evidence related to the E2 by study details and outcomes and sets the stage for the continued work presented in this supplement to the Journal of Professional Nursing.
