Paraprofessional Test

You must score 70% on each portion of the test (math, writing, and professional knowledge). (Multiple Choice) and you must score 24 out of 36 on the writing portion.

If you do not pass a portion of the test then you may come back and retake that portion of the test.  (If you need to come back a third time you will need to pay another $25.00.)

The following links have Paraprofessional practice tests and test-taking tips: 

Test Taking Tips/Math practice test

The Test will take 3 to 4 hours to complete, so we only schedule tests in the morning and no later than noon.  The test is given on demand.  I do like a days notice but if a person calls up early one morning and wants to take the test and I am here then that is fine.

To schedule testing call or e-mail:
