Exam Statistics

• Each End of Rotation™ exam has at least two forms, and national comparative data are available for each form. The data on this page include projected mean (μ), standard deviation (σ), reliability ( r), and standard error of measurement (SEM) for the forms at their construction. National comparative data are based on a representative sample of physician assistant students who have answered the exam questions previously. Data in the cohort Performance Reports are updated weekly as the live exam items are administered.
