Success Story: NIU Achieves First 100% Initial NPTE Pass Rate With TrueLearn (Case Study)
Northern Illinois University, located in DeKalb, IL, continues to be a leader in DPT education, striving for excellence and being noticed as a highly sought-after program. NIU’s DPT program provide an enriched curriculum dedicated to producing highly qualified physical therapists.
NIU’s Physical Therapy program was searching for solutions to increase the intial pass rate on NPTE. After reviewing multiple online programs, the Associate pRofessor and Program Coordinator determined many would not meet the needs of their students. With varying results from PEAT over the past few years, NIU chose to provide TrueLearn’s NPTE® SmartBank for its students.
TrueLearn’s quizzing capabilities allowed the program’s students to identify subjects that required further study. Students were able to promptly share areas of opportunity with program faculty, resulting in real-time guidance. As NIU’s first DPT class to use TrueLearn, all Class of 2020 graduates pased their licensing exam on the first attempt.
TrueLearn has helped increase NIU’s YoY first-time pass rate by 18%, resulting in the program’s first 100% initial pass rate.
“…TrueLearn had a direct impact on the program’s outcome measure of improving first time pass rate on the NPTE. The program had its first 100% initial pass rate.”M.J. Blaschak, Associate Professor and Program Coordinator
