Master’s level Counselor Education Programs were asked to participate in a study to determine students’ perceptions about the exit requirement experience. Ninety-five recent graduates or graduate students nearing completion of a counselor education degree were surveyed. Results from 91 usable responses indicated that overall, students who were enrolled in programs that required some form of an exit requirement were satisfied with the process. Furthermore, the majority of these respondents felt that the major purpose of the exit requirement was to measure synthesis of knowledge. Implications for assessment in counselor education programs are discussed.
