Abstract

Date Presented 03/28/20

The purpose of this study was to determine whether the HSRT predicts student success. The data was analyzed using an ordinal logistic regression and a Spearman’s rho correlation coefficient. Statistical analyses revealed that the HSRT is not a valid predictor of student success, and there is also a weak relationship between the HSRT and student success. The HSRT can be further studied with other admission tools to determine what most accurately measures student success in a graduate OT program.
