Relationship of the Nelson Denny Reading Test to Scores on the National Physical Therapy Licensure Examination
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). Sixtyseven 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. Analysis revealed that a moderate positive relationship and statistically significant difference existed between scaled scores on the Reading Test and the NPTE for those graduates who passed the NPTE their first time.
