Exam RegistrationThis registration must be completed by the person who will be taking the examination or module. In addition, contact information entered must be for the person sitting for the examination or module.
Before you continue with the exam registration, you must agree to each of the following statements. Each of these statements reflects a requirement that has previously been communicated to you in the National Physical Therapy Examination (NPTE) Candidate Handbook, which describes NPTE testing policies. Adherence to these policies is necessary in order to maintain a fair and secure testing process for you and for other candidates.
If you do not agree to these terms you will not be permitted to test, and your Prometric testing fee will not be refunded.
I certify that I am the person whose name appears on the two forms of identification I will present prior to admission to the testing room. I am taking the NPTE solely for the purpose of seeking licensure in a U.S. jurisdiction, OR, if I am taking the examination for any other purpose, I have applied for and received special permission to take the NPTE from the Federation of State Boards of Physical Therapy (FSBPT).
I have read and agree to the terms set forth in the NPTE Candidate Handbook and the Prometric Testing Center Regulations, including but not limited to, the rules and regulations concerning test-day procedures; procedures for candidates in the event of disruptions or errors in test delivery or administration; and the ban on bringing study materials or other prohibited items into the testing room and on other prohibited conduct before, during, or after examination administration.
I am aware that all NPTE test materials, including my answers, are the property of FSBPT. I understand that the NPTE is a confidential and secure examination, protected by U.S. and international copyright and trade secret laws, and that its contents are being disclosed to me today in a limited context to permit me to test and for no other purpose.
I agree that I will not discuss or disclose NPTE content with anyone, whether it be orally, in writing, on the Internet, or through any other medium. I agree that I will not copy, reproduce, adapt, disclose, or transmit any examination question or answer, in whole or in part, or assist anyone else in doing the same. I further agree that I will not reconstruct examination content from memory, by dictation or by any other means, for any purpose, including but not limited to the purpose of sharing that information with any other individual or entity.
Examples of prohibited acts include, but are not limited to: describing questions or graphics from the examination; discussing examination questions on web “chat rooms,” message boards, or forums, or through email accounts; identifying terms or concepts contained in examination questions; sharing answers to questions; referring others to information seen on the examination; or reconstructing a list of topics tested.
Furthermore, I agree not to disclose the content of any other product owned by FSBPT, including its Practice Examination and Assessment Tool (PEAT), laws and rules examinations, or any other examinations.
I understand and agree that FSBPT has the right to cancel my scores if it finds any evidence of any irregularities whatsoever or I fail to cooperate with an FSBPT investigation or request for information. FSBPT is the final authority that determines whether I have the privilege of sitting for the NPTE and whether the score I receive is transferred to any licensing jurisdiction.
I am aware that if I provide false information or if I violate this Agreement, any of the NPTE rules or procedures, or any other terms or conditions stated in the NPTE Candidate Handbook or Prometric Testing Center Regulations, I may be subject to any or all of the following consequences:
- The Test Administrator may immediately dismiss me from the test session
- My scores may be canceled, without a refund, and the jurisdiction receiving my scores may be informed of the reason for the cancelation
- I may be banned from taking the NPTE
- I may face a lawsuit that may result in my paying monetary damages or in my receiving other court-enforced penalties
- I may face criminal prosecution
- I may incur monetary fines and disciplinary action by FSBPT and/or the jurisdiction in which I am applying for licensure
