The LARC now offers review sessions for students who need to take the Pre-Service Academic Performance Assessment (PAPA). Reviews for the reading, writing, and math portions of the PAPA exam are offered by experienced LARC tutors. Sessions during the academic year are eight weeks long. Review sessions offered during summer sessions and over breaks are accelerated; cumulatively, the sessions cover the skills, material, and techniques that will enable students to take and pass the PAPA.
Sessions are generally held during the ten weeks prior to each exam. Information about the PAPA itself, contact the College of Education at 610-436-2321. For more information about the PAPA review sessions, contact the LARC at 610-436-2535. Non West Chester Students may register and take the sessions for a nominal fee.
Registration for the PAPA Workshop is closed. Registration for new sessions will resume in the spring semester.
