  • Graduation year reports

    Results for students who graduated in a given calendar year and took the exam. The reports do not consider in what year a student tested, only in what year the student graduated.

Two-year ultimate pass rate by school

(Data current as of November 2016. Next scheduled update February 2017.)

These reports are the two-year average of the ultimate pass rate for graduation classes from 2012, 2013, and 2014 for CAPTE-accredited programs. These reports are based on data as of November 8, 2016.

The ultimate pass rate is defined as the percentage of students in a graduation class that took the NPTE and passed, no matter how many attempts it took.

The weighted average is computed using the following formula:

(A*X) + (B*Y)
       (X+Y)

A = ultimate pass rate of program for graduation year 2012
B = ultimate pass rate of program for graduation year 2013
X = number of students in graduation year 2012 who took the NPTE
Y = number of students in graduation year 2013 who took the NPTE

Pass rates are not reported for programs that graduated only one class during these two years. The pass rates for these programs are designated with an asterisk (*).
