For the second measure of student knowledge, we administer a standardized exam to
students in our experimental psychology courses. The exam consists of six topic areas
that are the covered throughout a psychology major’s academic career – developmental
psychology, abnormal psychology, social psychology, cognitive psychology, personality
psychology, and research methods. The following graph shows the number of students
who received a passing grade (350) on this assessment measure by subject area.
