Date Presented Accepted for AOTA INSPIRE 2021 but unable to be presented due to online event limitations.
This presentation provides OT practitioners working in the academic setting with an overview of the admissions process used by an OT program and the importance of criteria for admissions, primarily the Verbal Reasoning section of the Graduate Record Examinations (GRE). A binary logistic regression was used to analyze the data to determine whether the GRE was a significant predictor of a first-time pass rate on the National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy (NBCOT) exam. The results were significant (p < .00) for the Verbal Reasoning section.
