RESULTS: Data of a total of 374 courses were reached in ten universities.

DISCUSSION AND CONCLUSION: Our study showed that the skills-based and performance-based measurement and evaluation methods proposed in the National Core Education Program, which are designed to effectively evaluate the competencies planned to be acquired for students, are used less than other methods in undergraduate programs. For this reason, it is considered that the undergraduate program education plans need to be updated according to the National Core Education Program of Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation.
