PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING BEFORE STARTING ON CPSE TEST B!
INTERRUPTED ACCESS: If for any reason your access to this test is interrupted (e.g., loss of internet, incorrectly ending a test rather than saving it to continue later), click the first Useful link below: 'Access Interrupted' to immediately resume your testing.
General Information: CPSE Test B consists of 100 items covering the four CPSE domains (Crisis Assessment and Intervention, Clinical Assessment and Evaluation, Treatment Interventions, Legal and Ethical Standards). Ideally, Test B should be taken for the first time after completing all other CPSE Practice Tests and after thoroughly reading the CPSE Study Volume at least once, or even twice. A score of 70 - 75+ out of 100 is a strong starting score. Test B is extremely challenging!
You will be able to take CPSE Test B three times: Study Mode, Retake Mode, and Test Mode. You will be able to review your results as often as you like. To take the test over multiple sittings, click ‘end quiz’ and then the ‘Save for Later’ button.
STUDY MODE: It is strongly recommended the first time you take CPSE Test B, you complete the test in Study Mode. The test software will prompt you to review the rationale for each question immediately after completing the question; you should take the time to thoroughly review and study the rationale. On average it should take about 4 hours to complete and study the questions in Study Mode. Students who rush to complete the test are at a tremendous disadvantage in terms of both learning the content and developing test-taking skills.
RETAKE MODE: We recommend you wait to take CPSE Test B in Retake Mode for about 1 - 2 weeks after completing CPSE Test B in Study Mode. In Retake Mode, all 100 items are presented. The test software will again prompt you to review the rationale for each question immediately after completing the question. A question missed in Retake Mode represents a personal red flag, a question you may miss on the actual exam unless you take some action! Allow 2 - 3 hours to complete CPSE Test B in Retake Mode. It is expected that you will miss fewer than half as many items in Retake Mode as you missed in Study Mode.
TEST MODE: You should complete the test in Test Mode about 1 - 2 weeks after Retake Mode. In Test Mode, all 100 test items are presented, and you must complete all items before you will have the opportunity to review the rationales. Allow 2 hours to complete the items in Test Mode. In is expected that you should score at least 95+/100 in Test Mode.
