Life Span Developmental Psychology
3.0 / Lower
The UExcel Life Span Developmental Psychology examination is based on a one-semester, three-credit, lower-level undergraduate course in life span development. The examination measures understanding of the concepts, principles, and theories associated with life span development including genetics, prenatal development, and childbirth; infancy and toddlerhood; early childhood; middle childhood; adolescence; early adulthood; middle adulthood; late adulthood; and death and dying. The examination also tests for the ability to apply this understanding in specific situations and to integrate content across the stages of the life span. The examination assumes knowledge of content typically covered in an introductory psychology course. (Multiple-choice examination.)
