dc.description.abstractThis retrospective study attempted to identity differences between student groups occurring before and after the restructuring of the Army occupational therapy assistant (OTA) program. Records of 168 students were reviewed (104 records of students in the pre-restructuring group, 64 in the post-restructuring group). Several areas were examined: (a) demographic data, (b) course attrition rates, (c) performance on level II fieldwork, and (d) national certification exam pass rates. Analyses of demographic data revealed that students in the post-restructuring group were significantly older (p<.OOl) and of higher rank (p<.001) than students in the pre-restructuring group. Analysis using a chi-square test revealed a significant decrease in the attrition rate (p<.001) after the restructuring. At-test revealed that students in the post-restructuring group performed significantly better on their level II fieldwork (p=.030). National certification exam pass rates for the groups could not be determined due to the confidential nature in which scores are reporteden_US
