Marquette Counseling Students' Exam Scores Surpass National Average

Released: 4/13/15

Graduate students from the Department of Counselor Education and Counseling Psychology (CECP) posted stellar scores on the Counselor Preparation Comprehensive Examination (CPCE) for yet another year.

With a mean score of 105.04 on the CPCE, students surpassed the national mean of 86.80 by more than a standard deviation.

Commenting on the scores, Dean Bill Henk stated that “These remarkable scores are what I’ve come to expect. Our students have performed incredibly well on this national examination year after year, and that’s a testament to the high quality of the program, the faculty, and of course, the students themselves.”

The Counselor Preparation Comprehensive Examination is administered by the National Board for Certified Counselors. Used by over 250 universities, the CPCE is designed to assess counseling students’ knowledge in eight major areas, including human growth and development, helping relations, social and cultural foundations, group work, career and lifestyle development, appraisal, research and program evaluation and professional orientation and ethics.​
