Is the PCE Valid? – Step 2: Writing Exam Questions

We follow best practices while writing questions for the exam:

  1. All exam questions are linked to the blueprint which mirrors the findings of the latest practice analysis.
  2. All exam questions are developed by subject matter experts in regional teams. These SME’s are chosen for being practice leaders and are trained in writing exam questions.
  3. Draft questions are reviewed by a regional committee and then a national committee of physiotherapy experts. No single physiotherapist can develop a question on their own.
  4. All exam questions are reviewed after each exam to statistically gauge their performance.  Any problematic questions are removed from the exam and question bank
