Welcome to the
Basecamp covers academic core content in five distinct Mountains (Musculoskeletal, Neuromuscular, Cardiopulmonary, Other Systems, Non- Systems). Within each mountain there are numerous Trails (e.g., anatomy, range of motion, special tests) which represent specific academic subject matter relevant to each Mountain. Collectively Basecamp offers over 100 Trails organized into 25 Peaks.
Basecamp provides students with unique Assignments, Videos, and Exams to promote mastery of specific subject matter within each Trail.
Assignments from our best-selling review books PTEXAM: The Complete Study Guide and PTAEXAM: The Complete Study Guide allow students to move through academic content in an orderly and predictable fashion based on the relative weighting of each Mountain on the National Physical Therapy Examinations. An internal tracking system assists students to stay focused and make meaningful daily progress.
Video assessments allow students to engage in meaningful self-assessment related to essential academic content in each trail. The videos utilize a variety of testing instruments and games designed to provide students with valuable information related to their current competence in each academic area. The videos are imaginative and carefully constructed to ensure that students have fun while engaging in serious academic content review and assessment.
After completing the assignment and video assessment for each Trail, students have the opportunity to demonstrate their academic knowledge by completing a multiple-choice final examination. Students receive immediate feedback on their examination performance and are presented with explanations for each correct answer. Basecamp includes over 2,000 multiple-choice questions.
An advanced Scorecard section allows students to monitor their performance in each of the Mountains and the associated Trails. By identifying areas of deficiency students are able to develop appropriate remedial plans and enhance core academic content in specific content areas.
Studying is far more fun when it is associated with a competitive game. King of the Mountain provides students with the opportunity to assess their knowledge using two exciting game modes. The first game mode allows students to determine their proficiency in each Mountain by seeing how many consecutive questions they can answer correctly. A Level of mastery is determined based on the longest streak and the average streak across each Mountain. The second game mode allows students to challenge other Basecamp users in a battle of wits. Summative data collected during the challenges can be used to direct future remedial efforts. Tighten up those hiking boots and let the games begin!
Basecamp offers students the opportunity to customize the length of their journey.
