Assessments for Teacher Education & Certification in MO
The following links provide information regarding Missouri's required assessments for all candidates enrolled in a Missouri educator preparation program, as well as educators applying for additional areas of certification.
The Paraprofessional Assessment is for individuals seeking to be employed as teaching assistants residing in Title I schools.
DESE receives all official score reports directly from the testing company and those scores are uploaded directly to the individual's educator profile. You may verify the schedule of Score Report Dates at the following website: Score Reporting Dates
Note: Passage of a certification test will not automatically result in certification. Candidates who have met all certification requirements must still apply for certification using the Certification Account Portal found here: https://apps.dese.mo.gov/DESEApplicationsSignin/Index.
