HOW MANY MULTIPLE-CHOICE QUESTIONS ARE INCLUDED WITH BASECAMP?
There are 2,000 multiple-choice questions in Basecamp plus many other forms of questions within the video assessments.

ARE THE QUESTIONS IN BASECAMP DESIGNED TO BE SIMILAR IN STYLE AND FORMAT TO THE QUESTIONS ON THE NATIONAL PHYSICAL THERAPY EXAMINATIONS?
No! The purpose of the 2,000 questions in Basecamp is to make sure candidates possess strong core academic content knowledge. Core academic knowledge is a foundational component necessary to progress to the higher level analysis and decision making questions on the National Physical Therapy Examinations. Our resources, The Complete Study Guide and Online Advantage, contain more licensing-like questions and are ideal once a candidate has solid command of core academic content.

DOES BASECAMP OFFER EXPLANATIONS OF ANSWERS FOR THE MULTIPLE-CHOICE QUESTIONS?
Each of the multiple-choice questions in Basecamp has an explanation of the correct answer. The explanation will immediately appear after submitting an answer to the question.

HOW SIMILAR ARE THE QUESTIONS IN BASECAMP TO QUESTIONS IN OTHER SCOREBUILDERS’ PRODUCTS?
Sample examination questions utilized in each of our licensing resources are unique to that particular resource. For example, questions utilized in Basecamp are different than questions utilized in The Complete Study Guide or Online Advantage.

CAN STUDENTS PRINT OUT THE EXAMINATION QUESTIONS?
No! The examinations are designed to be taken online. Reproducing the questions contained within Basecamp for any reason would be considered a violation of established copyright law.

CAN I REWATCH THE VIDEO ASSESSMENTS AND RETAKE THE SAMPLE EXAMINATIONS?
Yes, indeed! Rewatch the videos and retake the sample exams as many times as you like within your access period!

IS IT POSSIBLE TO VARY THE PLAYBACK SPEED TO SPEED UP OR SLOW DOWN THE VIDEO PLAYBACK?
Yes! The video player allows for numerous playback speeds which can be extremely beneficial when reviewing selected videos. The video size can also be adjusted to expand to full screen if desired.

IS THE SCORECARD SUMMARY DATA REFLECTIVE OF ONLY THE FIRST ATTEMPT?
No, the Scorecard data is reflective of your most recent attempt at each trail. We encourage you to take the examinations as frequently as possible to commit the information to long term memory. This same approach is not recommended with more licensing-like questions when attempting to predict readiness for the actual examination.

IS THERE A RECOMMENDED PASSING SCORE ON THE SCORECARD?
There is not an established uniform “passing score”. The bottom line is that Basecamp assesses your core academic knowledge and as a result the expectation is that you should be doing “splendidly” prior to your Basecamp access expiring.

No! This would be considered a violation of existing copyright law. We do, however, offer discounts of up to 20% on class orders.
