Cameron University psychology students score in 93rd percentile on national assessment

Each semester, Cameron University psychology students take the Area Concentration Achievement Test (ACAT), a tool utilized by universities nationwide to assess content knowledge and retention by students at the completion of their major field of study. Two CU students, Dominique Bradley, Lawton, and Leslie Brown, Walters, scored in the 93rd percentile nationally.

“The Department of Psychology is just one of several academic departments at Cameron utilizing the ACAT to assess student outcomes,” says Dr. Mary Dzindolet, Chair. “When I received the news that Dominique and Leslie both scored in the 93rd percentile, I was thrilled. Those scores, as well as the scores of the other CU students who took the ACAT, are evidence that our outstanding faculty members are succeeding in the art of teaching.”

Cameron students were tested in the content areas of Abnormal, Developmental, Experimental Design, History and Systems, Human Learning and Cognition, Personality, Social, and Statistics.

Bradley will graduate in July 2019 with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology with a minor in History.

Brown completed a Bachelor of Science in Psychology with a minor in Family and Child Studies in December and is currently pursuing a Master of Science in Behavioral Sciences.
