Psychology Majors Perform Well on National Exam

Congratulations to the psychology graduating class of 2014, who performed well on the PACAT exam they took before graduation.  This assessment, taken by all of our graduating seniors, tests students in six different areas of the curriculum (Abnormal, Developmental, Experimental Design, History & Systems, Personality, and Social), and our students are compared to other psychology majors from across the country taking the same exam.  This year, there were 5,710 students across the nation who took the assessment, and the group of Ashland University psychology students scored in the 74th percentile.  To have an overall group performance score that high is an outstanding achievement, and we congratulate them on their efforts!
