Do You Want to Practice Taking the EPPP?
The Association of State and Provincial Psychology Boards (ASPPB) offers two different computer-delivered practice tests for the Examination for Professional Practice in Psychology EPPP):
- The PEPPP at Prometric testing centers, and
- The PEPPPO available online.
The PEPPP and the PEPPPO are different examinations. They have no items in common, so one may take either or both, depending on preparation needs. While the PEPPP and the PEPPPO are different practice exams, there are not multiple versions of each exam. You may re-take either exam but you will receive the same exam. The items on both the PEPPP and the PEPPPO are retired items from the EPPP item bank and have been prepared using the same procedures as items selected for use on the actual EPPP.
To take either of the ASPPB practice tests, an individual must be preparing for psychology licensure, and must attest to meeting at least one of the following eligibility requirements by being:
The PEPPP: Practice EPPP at Prometric Testing Center
A student in a doctoral psychology program; or
A student in a master's psychology program in a state or province that grants a license, certification or registration for master's-trained individuals; or
An individual with a degree that qualifies him or her to take the EPPP; or
A candidate for licensure as a psychologist.
The 100-item computer administered Practice Examination for Professional Practice in Psychology (PEPPP) offers individuals a chance to practice answering examination questions under real-world testing conditions at a Prometric Testing Center of their choice. Candidates will experience navigating the exam with the actual test administration program, and will receive immediate feedback on their performance. This is an excellent way to get a preview of the physical characteristics of the chosen Prometric Testing Center, including lighting, temperature, noise level, parking issues, etc.PEPPP Fees
The fees for the PEPPP are a $50, non-refundable test fee, plus a test center fee of $61.77 that must be paid by credit card at the time a practice-test appointment is scheduled with Prometric. Thus, the total fee for taking the PEPPP at a Prometric Testing Center is $111.77.Applying for the PEPPP
You may register for the PEPPP through the same online application center where you register for the EPPP (see link at bottom of page). When your application is accepted, you will receive an Authorization to Test letter by email. This letter will provide you with a registration number and the phone number of the Prometric call center, which you will then contact to schedule an appointment for testing. Examination appointments for the PEPPP are available Monday through Friday at more than 320 Prometric Testing Centers in the U.S. and Canada. Information on Prometric locations may be found on the web at www.prometric.com/asppb/default.htm. A single 100-item practice examination will be available.PEPPP Scores
Candidates will receive immediate feedback on their performance on the PEPPP in the form of an overall scaled score, and part scores in percent format.The PEPPPO: Practice EPPP Online
The 100-item practice test is available as the Practice Examination for Professional Practice in Psychology Online (PEPPPO). Candidates for this web-based examination can take a practice test containing sample retired EPPP questions at the time and place of their choice with any computer that can connect to the Internet.PEPPPO Fees
The fee for the PEPPPO practice examination is $55.00 and is paid at the time of registration. This is the same online application center where you register for the EPPP. Taking the PEPPPO
Candidates can take the PEPPPO immediately after registering.
You can pause and exit your web browser while taking the PEPPPO and return later to finish the practice test, however:
You must return within 48 hours of when you began taking the PEPPPO, and
The total time allowed for taking the PEPPO (across all sittings) is limited to 2 hours
Warning: You should only use the "Finish Exam and View Scores” option when you have completed the PEPPPO. There is no way to go back to the practice test once you have clicked that option.
Candidates will receive immediate feedback on their performance on the PEPPPO in the form of (1) an overall scaled score, and (2) part scores in percent format.
NOTE: Both the PEPPP and the PEPPPO are offered for practice purposes only. ASPPB makes no representation that performance on the practice tests is a valid indicator of performance on any future licensing examination or a guarantee of passage of such a licensing examination. An individual's score on a practice test will not be accepted in lieu of the passage of an actual form of the EPPP. By taking these practice tests, each individual acknowledges that he or she understands these limitations on their use.
