KMK Optometry is excited to introduce another awesome addition to the KMK Part 1 and Part 2 courses – the KMK Optometry Student Performance® Dashboard! Available through your browser and in the newly released KMKGo. app, the KMK Optometry Student Performance® Dashboard is your one stop shop for reviewing your results on questions and exams, accessing your saved questions for in-depth review, and access to study plans, tutorial videos, KMK Optometry social media accounts, and more. Let’s dive in to learn about all of the exciting new features available in the KMK Optometry Student Performance® Dashboard for Part 1 and Part 2!
Track Personal Statistics for all of your Practice Exams
The KMK Student Performance® Dashboard in the KMK Optometry Part 1 online course allows you to access your results from all attempts and all levels of KMK Optometry Precise Practice® and KMK Optometry Evolve® practice tests. You can review the correct and incorrect answers, as well as read detailed explanations as to why an answer is correct or incorrect for each question. You may also save any KMK Optometry Precise Practice® or KMK Optometry Evolve® practice test question for later in-depth review to make sure you are rock solid on difficult concepts. These questions are stored under the Saved Questions tab on the KMK Optometry Student Performance® Dashboard. In addition to reviewing the correct answers and explanations for the Evolve® practice tests, the KMK Student Performance® Dashboard also shows you a detailed score report for each Evolve® practice test! You will see your overall score, as well as your score in the 5 main sections scored on the Part 1 NBEO® exam (e.g., Anatomy, Biochemistry/Physiology, Immunology/Microbiology/Pathology, Optics, and Pharmacology). For the first time ever, you can track your progress in each of these 5 main sections on the Evolve® practice tests through the KMK Student Performance® Dashboard. Understanding your strong and weak sections will help you focus your study time on the concepts that are most difficult so you can dominate these areas on boards!
One-stop location for all KMK Part 1 Strategy & all Social Media Accounts
The KMK Optometry Student Performance® Dashboard for Part 1 contains quick access links to several awesome features that will enhance your study process and boost your confidence on the Part 1 NBEO® exam! You can access the Part 1 tutorial video that describes KMK’s approach to studying for Part 1, as well as step by step goals for how to approach the Part 1 NBEO® exam. You may also access the complete KMK Part 1 review textbook outline, which is designed to help you quickly navigate through the textbooks and the online video library so you can dominate your review. You may access #KMKTYK, powered by Twitter®, which is a series of questions curated by KMK’s Chief Medical Editor, Dr. Kendra Null, designed to help you review the most important concepts in the KMK Big 8® subjects for Part 1. As the exam gets closer, the KMKTYK questions are derived from KMK advanced courses and increase in difficulty to help you stretch your foundation of knowledge so you can crush the Part 1 exam! The KMK Student Performance® Dashboard also includes links to the KMKOptometry social media accounts, including Twitter®, Instagram®, and Facebook®, a link to download the brand new, redesigned KMKGo. app, and a link to KMK Central, KMK’s main information page for announcements, upgrades, coaching tips from the KMK team, and more!
Part 2 Awesomeness as Well
The KMK Student Performance® Dashboard for Part 2 includes the features you love in the Part 1 course, as well as several new exciting additions to enhance your performance on the Part 2 NBEO® exam, including the TMOD® exam! You can review your results for all attempts and levels of Full Cases, Mini Cases, TMOD® cases, Precise Practice® questions, and the Pharmacology/Bartlett exam. The results reporting for each module includes correct and incorrect answers, as well as a detailed explanation for every question. You will also receive a detailed score report for Full Cases, Mini Cases, and TMOD® Cases. This report includes your overall score, as well as your score in the 16 main sections scored on the Part 2 NBEO® exam (Cornea/Conjunctiva/Refractive Surgery, Retina/Choroid/Vitreous, Optic Nerve/Neuro-ophthalmic Pathways, Emergencies/Trauma, Ophthalmic Optics, etc.). Now you can track your progress in individual sections on the Part 2 NBEO® matrix, which helps you focus your study time on the subjects that require the most work! In addition, any question in Full Cases and Mini Cases classified as a TMOD® question per the NBEO® website will be labeled TMOD so you can track your progress on TMOD® items throughout the entire Part 2 course (not just the separate TMOD® module)! Similar to the Part 1 course, you can save Precise Practice® questions and Pharmacology/Bartlett exam questions in the KMK Student Performance® Dashboard for later review.
The KMK Student Performance® Dashboard for Part 2 also includes several quick access links to provide you with even more study tools to dominate the Part 2 NBEO® exam! You can access the Part 2 tutorial video, which describes KMK’s approach to studying for Part 2. You can also download KMK’s 5 step study process for Part 2, which provides you with a roadmap and timeline for studying so you can dominate the exam! Advanced Testing is another quick access link that provides you with supplemental text for the Part 2 course. This includes detailed descriptions and images of how to interpret corneal topography, macular and RNFL OCT scans, visual fields, and laboratory testing. You may access the KMK Image Gallery, powered by Instagram®, through the KMK Student Performance® Dashboard. The KMK Image Gallery contains a library of 400+ images, with new images posted weekly, to help you learn how to confidently diagnose conditions based off images so you can crush the exam.
Go Optometry Pro.
Unique to the Part 2 course, the KMK Student Performance® Dashboard also includes a quick access link to KMK Career Builder®, a compilation course that offers two professional resources to help new ODs (including you!) feel confident and empowered as they begin their careers or residencies. These resources include the 2018-2019 KMK Update® book, which organizes clinically relevant and evidence-based pearls on the most common conditions encountered in clinical practice, as well as the KMK Billing & Coding® course that helps ODs master coding in order to minimize audit risks and maximize patient revenue. Similar to the Part 1 KMK Student Performance® Dashboard, the Part 2 KMK Student Performance® Dashboard includes links to the KMK social media accounts, the KMKGo. app, and KMK Central. Last but certainly not least, the newly developed KMK Part 2 Crash Course supplement text will be available soon through a quick access link in the KMK Part 2 Student Performance® Dashboard!
Now that you know all the new features available in the KMK Student Performance® Dashboard, you can make the most of your study time by efficiently reviewing your results and accessing additional study resources so you can dominate the Part 1 and Part 2 exams! This feature is available through your browser or the new KMKGo. app.
