Who takes the EPPP?

Doctoral or master’s level candidates or degree holders take the EPPP to obtain a certificate of professional practice in Canada or the USA.

Who administers the EPPP?

The EPPP is a computerized assessment prepared by the American Psychological Association (APA) and offered to registered candidates at Pearson VUE testing centers. Candidates initiate the testing process by applying to the licensing authority in their state or province, which contacts the EPPP for scheduling.

There is a $600 application and an $87.50 scheduling fee, payable to Pearson VUE, to take the exam within 90 days of registration. These fees are nonrefundable to candidates who are no-shows or who wish to reschedule their test within the final month of the 90-day testing window.

Test takers should arrive at the Pearson VUE site well before their exam begins for an orientation on the testing software. A photo ID is the only personal item candidates may take into the testing center. Test center staff may supply a whiteboard or pencil and paper to facilitate note-taking during the exam.

Special Accommodations

Pearson VUE makes arrangements for test takers with documented disabilities. These include separate testing rooms, additional testing time, and the provision of a reader or recorder. A French language version of the exam is offered to those seeking licensure in areas that require that a French version of be available.

How is the test organized?

The EPPP consists of 225 multiple choice questions to be completed in a testing period of four hours and fifteen minutes. In order to achieve an ASPPB-approved passing score of 500 or above, the test taker must answer 70% of the questions. Individual states and provinces may establish additional scoring requirements for licenses in their jurisdictions. Candidates whose scores fall below the requirements of their licensing boards may repeat the application process to retake the EPPP.

What does the EPPP cover?

There are eight sections of the EPPP. These content areas address the biological, cognitive-affective, and social-cultural bases of behavior; growth and development; diagnosis and assessment; treatment and supervision; statistics and research methods; and professional ethics and legal issues.

What are the best ways to prepare for the EPPP?

Even candidates who have excelled in their graduate studies may falter when it comes to taking a licensure exam. Test experts advise that candidates review key concepts and take practice tests that adhere as closely as possible to the questions on the actual exam. Mometrix offers study materials proven to focus study and increase the odds of success on the EPPP.

The Mometrix EPPP Flashcards provides a thorough, convenient review of content terminology, definitions, and domain associations.
