Prior studies have explored variables that had predictive relationships with National Physical Therapy Examination (NPTE) score or NPTE failure. The purpose of this study was to explore whether certain variables were predictive of test-takers' first-time score on the NPTE. SUBJECTS: The population consisted of 134 students who graduated from the university's Professional DPT Program in 2012 to 2014. METHODS: This quantitative study used a retrospective design. Two separate data analyses were conducted...

PURPOSE: The rising cost of health professions education is well documented and a growing concern among educators; however, little is known about the implications of resource investment on student success. The objective of this study was to determine whether programs with higher National Physical Therapist Exam (NPTE) pass rates invested significantly more on programmatic resources. METHODS: This observational study used data from the Commission on Accreditation in Physical Therapy Education's (CAPTE) Annual Accreditation Report including all accredited physical therapist programs from the United States who graduated physical therapist students in 2011...

BACKGROUND: In the domain of academia, the scholarship of research may include, but not limited to, peer-reviewed publications, presentations, or grant submissions. Programmatic research productivity is one of many measures of academic program reputation and ranking. Another measure or tool for quantifying learning success among physical therapists education programs in the USA is 100 % three year pass rates of graduates on the standardized National Physical Therapy Examination (NPTE)...

Estimating the causal interaction between neurons is very important for better understanding the functional connectivity in neuronal networks. We propose a method called normalized permutation transfer entropy (NPTE) to evaluate the temporal causal interaction between spike trains, which quantifies the fraction of ordinal information in a neuron that has presented in another one. The performance of this method is evaluated with the spike trains generated by an Izhikevich's neuronal model. Results show that the NPTE method can effectively estimate the causal interaction between two neurons without influence of data length...

This study investigated a pretest strategy that identified physical therapist assistant (PTA) students who were at risk of failure on the National Physical Therapy Examination (NPTE). Program assessment data from five cohorts of PTA students (2005-2009) were used to develop a stepwise multiple regression formula that predicted first-time NPTE licensure scores. Data used included the Nelson-Denny Reading Test, grades from eight core courses, grade point average upon admission to the program, and scores from three mock NPTE exams given during the program...

This study examined the relationship between scaled scores of reading comprehension as measured by the Nelson Denny Reading Test and scaled scores on the National Physical Therapy Licensure Examination (NPTE). Sixty-seven graduate students from Arkansas State University participated in this study. The Nelson Denny Reading Test was given at the initiation of the physical therapy program, and the NPTE was taken after successful completion of the graduate program in physical therapy. A correlation analysis examined the scaled scores of these graduates from the Reading Test and the NPTE...

BACKGROUND: Several factors have been shown to influence first-time pass rates on the National Physical Therapy Examination (NPTE). It is unclear to what extent academic difficulty experienced by students in a physical therapist education program may affect NPTE pass rates. The effects of institutional status (public or private) and Carnegie Classification on NPTE pass rates also are unknown. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to quantify the odds of failure on the NPTE for students experiencing academic difficulty and for institutional status and Carnegie Classification...

BACKGROUND: The purpose of this study was to investigate relationships among clinical education performance, academic performance, critical thinking (CT) skills, and success on the National Physical Therapy Examination (NPTE) of graduates from a post-baccalaureate professional physical therapy program. Results of previous research comparing clinical and academic performance measures have been mixed. Academic performance measures have been linked to CT skills and NPTE performance but identifying factors related to success on the NPTE is unclear...

By blocking "de novo" protein synthesis using cycloheximide, we previously described a dynamic model system to monitor turnover of a specific population of the Alzheimer's amyloid precursor protein. Here we show that cycloheximide is nontoxic and its effect is reversible, allowing protein synthesis to reinitiate. Upon cycloheximide removal protein synthesis restarted and by 1 hour the amyloid precursor protein- green fluorescent protein could be clearly detected, permitting the monitoring of amyloid precursor protein anterograde transport, particularly the secretory pathway...

Evidence supporting the use of personal interviews in admissions decisions for health professions programs is conflicting. This retrospective study was intended to (1) quantify interrater reliability for assessing performance on a particular type of structured interview, the behavioral interview, and (2) examine the ability of multiple preadmission variables, including performance on the behavioral interview, to predict first-time performance on the national physical therapy licensing examination (NPTE). Data from 89 interviewees during the 2006-07 admissions cycle were used to examine inter-rater reliability...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to determine whether admissions data could be used to estimate physical therapist student risk for failing the National Physical Therapy Examination (NPTE). SUBJECTS: A nationally representative sample of 20 physical therapist education programs provided data on 3,365 students. METHODS: Programs provided data regarding demographic characteristics, undergraduate grade point average (uGPA), and quantitative and verbal Graduate Record Examination scores (qGRE, vGRE)...
