Comparative Analysis

Compare the exam outlines to the ACOTE® standards

We conducted a comparative analysis of the outlines for the OTR and COTA exams and the Accreditation Council for Occupational Therapy Education (ACOTE®) Standards. The results may help to guide discussion during curriculum review.

Results showed that all knowledge statements in our exam outlines are reflected in the ACOTE Standards. The comparative analyses were previously referred to as matrix studies.
