All Western graduates participate in a statewide assessment effort called ETS®
Proficiency Profile (ETS® PP). This university-wide exit exam must be completed
prior to graduation. If you have earned 90 credit hours, you are eligible to
preregister online to take the ETS® PP. Do not confuse the ETS® PP with your
department Major Field Test. You may be required to take both.
The ETS® PP test measures general education skills such as critical thinking, reading,
writing and mathematics. Your scores will be compared to scores of other graduates across
the nation. The success of Western students on the ETS® PP influences the perceptions
others have regarding the quality of Western programs and the value of your degree.
There is no cost to you for the ETS® PP exam if taken during a regularly scheduled
time. Allow one and a half hours to complete the exam. Your confidential scores will be
reported to you shortly after the exam is completed. To avoid an $85 individual testing
fee, please select a regularly scheduled testing date/time. All tests are administered
in Popplewell Hall, Room 307.
Online preregistration is required for admission to the testing location. Exam sessions
are limited to the number of computer stations available. You must bring your MWSU ID
to be admitted to the exam session. No walk-in registration is permitted.
If you are unable to attend your designated testing session, please notify Carolyn
Schindler at 271-4364 or email@example.com.
