Examination for the Professional Practice in Psychology (EPPP) - National Exam
An approved applicant may request to take the EPPP. The exam may be taken before, during, or after completion of your post-doctoral supervised work experience, and either before or after the Jurisprudence exam. Do not submit any payment to OBOP. Your eligibility will be transmitted to the ASPPB Examination Portal, which will generate an email to you with exam registration instructions.
The EPPP is developed and owned by the Association
of State and Provincial Psychology Boards (ASPPB). It is a multiple
choice exam, administered continuously in computerized delivery format
through the Pearson network of computer testing centers. Further
information on the specifics of the exam can be found on the ASPPB
website at www.asppb.org.
You may login to the Applicant Portal and click "Review Documents" to view your score, which is updated when score reports are received. Your score should be posted within 2-4 weeks following the week you took your exam.
If you have already passed the EPPP and need to request an official EPPP Score Verification (score transfer) from ASPPB, you can make such a request via their PSY|PRO.
