Objective: Scores on the American College of Psychiatrists' Psychiatry Residency In-Training Examination (PRITE) were correlated with scores on the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology (ABPN) Part I examination in psychiatry.
Method: Pearson correlations between 1992 PRITE scores and 1994 ABPN Part I psychiatry scores were calculated. Analyses were based on 701 examinees.
Results: There was a moderate correlation between scores on the PRITE and ABPN Part I examination in psychiatry and a low correlation of neurology scores.
Conclusions: These correlations were observed even though the two examinations differ in their purposes, content outlines, development, and administration.
