THE NEW YORK COLLEGE PROFICIENCY EXAMINATION PROGRAM.
New York State Education Dept., Albany.; State Univ. of New York, Albany.
THE NEW YORK STATE COLLEGE PROFICIENCY EXAMINATION PROGRAM (CPE) WAS ESTABLISHED BY THE STATE EDUCATION DEPARTMENT TO OPEN UP THE STATE'S EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES TO THOSE WHO HAD ACQUIRED COLLEGE-LEVEL KNOWLEDGE IN WAYS OTHER THAN THROUGH REGULAR CLASSROOM ATTENDANCE. FACULTY MEMBERS OF COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES IN NEW YORK STATE, WORKING IN COMMITTEES, DRAW UP EXAMINATION SPECIFICATIONS, WRITE EXAMINATION QUESTIONS, RATE CANDIDATES' ANSWERS TO THOSE QUESTIONS, AND DETERMINE LEVELS OF PERFORMANCE NEEDED TO ACHIEVE SATISFACTORY CPE GRADES. THE STATE EDUCATION DEPARTMENT ITSELF DOES NOT GRANT COURSE CREDIT. THIS IS LEFT TO THE INDIVIDUAL EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTION TO DO, OR NOT TO DO, IN A MANNER CONSISTENT WITH ITS STANDARDS. HOWEVER, SATISFACTORY PERFORMANCE ON A CPE WILL BE ACCEPTED BY THE STATE EDUCATION DEPARTMENT IN LIEU OF SPECIFIC COURSE REQUIREMENTS FOR TEACHER CERTIFICATION. THIS DOCUMENT PRESENTS THE BACKGROUND OF THE PROGRAM, QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS ABOUT IT, POLICY STATEMENTS OF NEW YORK COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES REGARDING CPE, AND A DESCRIPTION OF EACH EXAMINATION INCLUDING MATERIAL COVERED AND OBJECTIVES TESTED. SPECIAL ADULT DEGREE PROGRAMS ARE LISTED. (AJ)
