Pearson, the publisher of the PCAT, would like to thank the 30 schools that have graciously agreed to participate in the PCAT predicative validity study. We look forward to analyzing the data and reporting our results to pharmacy schools. Any questions about the study should be directed to Christina Perez.
Based on feedback from pharmacy admission personnel, Pearson is publishing a short summary of information regarding the interpretation of PCAT scores reported on the Official Transcripts sent to pharmacy schools. All pharmacy schools receiving PCAT scores will be mailed copies of the Quick Reference, which is also available to download from the AACP Web site.
