The ETS Major Field Tests were designed to assist higher education institutions and academic programs in assessing student knowledge within the academic major. Verifying that the content covered in the specific discipline are those that the institution seeks to measure is an important first step when considering usage of the Major Field Tests. We highly recommend that faculty members conduct a content review to determine whether the content and coverage on the tests are consistent with the program’s expectations of students majoring in that field at their institution.
Departments can obtain a review copy of any of the Major Field Tests by completing the Confidential Review Copy Request Form.
Once approved, within 5 to 10 business days, you will receive an email with a link to the test, which can be accessed for 30 days. Like the actual test your students will take, the review copy of the test is a timed experience.
Please request as many review copies as necessary — one for each member of your review committee. If your test expires before you have completed the review, contact an ETS Advisor.
