Frequently Asked Questions

Your school requires students to take comprehensive assessment exams in order to assess your learning and to evaluate the program learning outcomes associated with the program of study. The purpose of this exam is to allow school officials the ability to assess the quality of the academic programs, so that the school can improve its programs and provide the best possible educational experience for all students. The assessment exam helps ensure that the school maintains the highest quality of education.

The comprehensive exam covers topics taught throughout the degree program, which are aligned to the topics required for accreditation. If you are taking this exam early in your program (the inbound exam), there is no need to prepare. This exam simply assesses the baseline data the school needs for its analysis. If you are taking the exam at the end of your program (the outbound exam), the preparation for the exam comes from your educational experience with the school, specifically through the required courses for your degree. The exam assesses the foundational knowledge areas. There is no need to prepare for the exam.
