About the Exam
The EPPP is used by state and provincial boards of psychology to measure the qualifications possessed by applicants for licensure and certification. It includes 175 scored questions and 50 pre-test items, and you'll have four hours and 15 minutes to complete the exam.
The EPPP is made up of eight subject areas: biological bases of behavior (12% of total exam); cognitive-affective bases of behavior (13%); social and cultural bases of behavior (12%); growth and lifespan development (12%); assessment and diagnosis (14%); treatment, intervention, prevention and supervision (14%); research methods and statistics (8%); and ethical, legal and professional issues (15%).
Preparing & Registering for the EPPP Exam
The lessons within each chapter in this course contain practice quizzes you can use to monitor your comprehension of the material topic by topic. These assessments function interactively, directing you back to the relevant part of the lesson when you answer incorrectly. At the end of each chapter, you'll also find a practice final exam allowing for a more complete evaluation of your knowledge on the subject.
In order to take the EPPP, you must submit your application for licensure within your state. The authority you apply to will determine if you meet the state's requirements before putting your information into an EPPP registration system containing the application materials, allowing you to login and confirm your account. Once you've been approved to take the EPPP, you'll need to set up a login account, pay the associated fees and schedule your testing appointment. The test is offered at centers throughout the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico. Once your exam and scheduling fees are paid, you'll have up to 90 days to take the test. After you schedule the exam, you'll receive an email containing your confirmation as well as time and location, an order number, a registration ID, and your ASPPB ID number.
