Paraprofessional Exam from Educational Testing Service (ETS)

The ParaPro Assessment measures the skills and knowledge in reading, writing, and math possessed by prospective and practicing educational assistants and paraprofessionals. It also measures the ability to apply skills and knowledge when assisting in a classroom. It was designed to satisfy the requirements of the federally legislated No Child Left Behind Act. 

Candidates have 2 ½ hours to complete the test. The exam consists of 90 multiple choice questions, approximately two-thirds focusing on basic skills and knowledge. The remaining questions relate to applying skills in the classroom. All questions are in English.
