The predictors of success on the National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy (NBCOT®) were investigated by analyzing OT students' graduate-level course grades and their Occupational Therapy Knowledge Exam (OTKE) scores. The researchers found that pedagogy styles and success in foundational courses had no significant indication of overall first-time pass rates on the NBCOT. The best predictor of success on the NBCOT continues to be the OTKE.
