Word on the Exams:
You will be presented with a series of Vignettes describing a clinical case. Each vignette has 3 testing modes (Study, Retake and Exam/Test). There is also an audio of each question for a more interactive experience and to help you gain practice, confidence and comfort with responding to questions orally. You may access the audio by pressing the "Play audio" directly beneath each vignette and question. To respond to questions orally only, without writing out responses, please type any letter in the response box and submit to move on to the next question.
It is suggested that you type out your answers when responding in Study Mode, which is untimed. This will help you to slow down the process of looking at the nature of the problems presented, making assessments, conceptualizing cases, identifying treatment needs, applying appropriate intervention strategies, exploring risk management, devising crisis intervention strategies and in considering ethical, legal and diversity issues.
Tests in Retake Mode are timed. While you may save your progress and continue at a later time, you will not be permitted to skip questions or move back and forth through questions.
It is suggested that for quizzes 3 and 4 you attempt them in Exam/Test mode first followed by Study mode then Retake Mode. This will better prepare you for the pace of the actual Psychology Oral Exam. Tests in Retake Mode are timed but allow you more time than the actual Oral Exam so you may gradually ease into exam-mode.
Exam/Test Mode tests are timed and cannot be saved and taken at a later time. You are also not allowed to skip back and forth through questions in this mode. You must complete tests in this mode in one sitting, as they are meant to be mock exams that best approximate what your actual exam experience may feel like.
