Abstract

The Federation of State Boards of Physical Therapy (FSBPT) administers the National Physical Therapy Examination (NPTE). A student who has graduated from an accredited physical therapy program must take and pass the examination to become a licensed physical therapist. The minimum score in order to be successful on the NPTE is a 600/800. Variables that predict first time success on the NPTE have been researched extensively to date. This literature review presents four studies aimed at identifying predictor variables for first time success on the NPTE.
