As noted above, the DP2 summative evaluation is diagnostic; the
DP3 exam must be passed with a specific score. Each will be administered each
semester as determined by the Department of History. Social Studies
Teaching Majors will have THREE opportunities to pass the DP3 exam. Those
students who do not so will NOT be certified by the Department of History as
having satisfied content requirements as specified by the student's licensure
area in History.
