Political Science Exit Exam

The Educational Testing Service (ETS) Field Test in Political Science is a comprehensive undergraduate outcomes assessment designed to measure critical knowledge and understanding obtained by test takers in the UCF Political Science and International & Global Studies major field of study. It goes beyond factual knowledge by evaluating test takers’ ability to analyze and solve problems, understanding relationships and interpret material from their major field of study.

Test takers must complete the Political Science Exit Exam during the test taker’s graduating semester.

The ETS Major Field Test in Political Science is computerized and consists of approximately 130 multiple-choice questions. Test takers will have two (2) hours to complete the test.
