PACKRAT® Version 26 Available November 16

PACKRAT version 26 is available starting for exam administrations on Tuesday, November 16! No blueprint or topic list changes were made. All PACKRAT administrations scheduled to be taken on or after November 16 will be transitioned to the new version. Version 25 will remain available as a back-up for retesting purposes, but version 24 will no longer be available. 

After the new version has been taken 300 times, we will add national average scores and standard deviations to all performance reports, and these will be updated weekly as more students take the exams. This usually happens in late November or early December. 

PACKRAT is an objective, comprehensive self-assessment tool for student and curricular evaluation. Each exam version is extensively peer-reviewed to ensure it is rigorous and appropriate for PA students. It consists of 225 multiple-choice questions that cover core clinical areas, and can be administered in a proctored or unproctored environment. 

Please contact with any questions.
