PAEA exams may be purchased by fully-accredited PA education programs to assess their students and curricula. They are not intended for personal use by PA students or graduates who want help in studying for certification exams.
End of Rotation™ exams may be purchased by any PAEA member program for $30 per exam per student, or $35 per exam per student after January 2020.
PACKRAT® exams are available at $40 for PAEA voting-member PA programs, and $45 for non-member PA programs. PAEA member programs of any type can purchase PACKRAT for $45 after January 2020.
End of Curriculum™ exams may be purchased by any PAEA member program for $99 per exam per student.
All exams may be purchased together in the Student Exam Box at a per-student rate of $420. The Student Exam Box includes up to two PACKRAT exams, 10 End of Rotation exams, and one End of Curriculum exam.
International Institutional Colleague members may purchase exams at the discretion of PAEA. Programs' representatives must have a conversation with PAEA Assessment staff to assess the suitability of their technological capabilities and to discuss proctoring requirements. There is an additional $5 per exam processing fee for non-U.S. programs.
If your program is new to PAEA exams and wishes to set up an account, please have the program director visit this page and complete the form. PAEA staff will review your request and set up your account within two business days. If you do not hear from PAEA within that time, send an email to exams@PAEAonline.org to inquire.
