The Basics about Content
Content outlines delineate the major content areas of the examinations. A committee composed of physical therapists (PT) and physical therapist assistants (PTAs) developed them based on national analyses of the tasks that PTs and PTAs perform.
In June 2022, FSBPT completed a new practice analysis cycle. The process resulted in important updates to the NPTE Content Outlines that will go into effect in January 2024. For more information on the practice analysis and rationales behind these changes, see the Ensuring Validity page
