Once you have been approved for testing, you will receive an email with instructions on how to access the Exit Exam online. Make sure to read the instructions carefully. The exam is only available via a PC, laptop or iPad. 

ETS Proficiency Profile (Graduation Exit Exam)

Each graduating student is required by the Tennessee Board of Regents to take a test of general competency. The ETS Proficiency Profile is a test of college-level skills in reading, writing, critical thinking and mathematics designed to measure the academic skills developed through general education courses, rather than the subject knowledge specifically taught in those courses. This test does not affect one's graduating status; rather it is a measure of how well Roane State educates its students. Students are encouraged to do their best since Roane State's evaluation and future funding are based on student performance. Students are advised that failure to meet this graduation requirement will result in having the student's diploma held until this condition is met.

Business Graduate Exam (BGE)

The BGE is taken as part of the BUSN 2399 Management Seminar class. This course should be taken during the final year of coursework and/or after the completion of ENGL 1010, ACCT 1010, BUSN 1305, BUSN 1380 and BUSN 2380 (or at least 3 of the Contemporary Managements courses (MGT 200, 201, 203, 205, 206, 207). The BGE consists of 40 multiple choice questions and is taken online at a Roane State Testing Center. There is no study guide for this exam.

AAS Criminal Justice Graduate Exam (CJGE)

All Criminal Justice students seeking an Associate of Applied Science degree must take the ETS Proficiency Profile Exam and the Criminal Justice Graduate Exit Exam prior to receiving a diploma.

You must first file an Intent to Graduate and allow time for review and approval. Once your Intent to Graduate form has been approved, you can take the CJGE. You must take your CJGE at the Harriman or Oak Ridge campus as it requires a password only known by Testing Center employees.

The CJGE consists of 80 multiple choice questions covering the subject areas of: Introduction to Criminal Justice, Introduction to Law Enforcement, Introduction to Corrections and Introduction to the Legal Process. There is no study guide for this exam. Please allow yourself 1 hour for the ETS Exit Exam and approximately 2 hours for the Criminal Justice Exam.
