Required Psychology Exit Exam

Students graduating with a BA or BS in Psychology are required to take the Psychology Exit Exam, a standardized test of knowledge of psychology approved by the Psychology Department. The results from this exam are used to inform program improvement for the undergraduate psychology program. The Psychology Exit Exam assesses knowledge in the core areas of Abnormal Psychology, Lifespan Development, Research Methods, Learning and Cognition, Personality, Behavioral Neuroscience, Social Psychology, and Statistics. There is no minimum score required for graduation and no special preparation is necessary. However, we recommend that students consider reviewing an Introduction to Psychology textbook prior to taking the exam. The Psychology Exit Exam can be taken at UAA Testing Center, locatedin LIB 215. You can schedule an appointment online and for more information, go to the UAA Testing Center website.
