Exam Statistics

Each End of Rotation™ exam has two forms, and national comparative data are available for each form. These data include mean (μ), standard deviation (σ), reliability (r), and standard error of measurement (SEM). National comparative data are based on a representative sample of 750–1,000 physician assistant students who have answered the exam questions previously.
