An exit exam, also known as a graduation or comprehensive exam, is an assessment administered to students at the end of their academic program to determine whether they have met the required learning outcomes and are eligible for graduation.
Exit exams vary by institution and may cover specific subjects, general education requirements, or the overall curriculum. These exams may be standardized or developed internally by the educational institution.
The purpose of an exit exam is to evaluate students' mastery of essential knowledge, skills, and competencies necessary for successful completion of their program of study.
The results of the exit exam may have implications for students' graduation status and may influence program accreditation or institutional assessment efforts.
