Registration, dates and delivery method

You register exam online with MasterCard, Visa or a debit card. Should you not have access to this form of payment, arrangements may be made to pay via check. After your payment is received, your registration will be valid for one year. If you do not take the test within the year or fail to withdraw within that timeframe, your registration will expire, and you will not receive a refund or credit.

The test is delivered a computer-based test (CBT) and appointments to take the exam can be scheduled Monday through Saturday, holidays excluded. Options are available for military personnel to utilize military base test centers with proper military identification and authorization.

Test Day

Plan to arrive at the testing facility 15 minutes before your scheduled time. Your digital signature and digital photo are taken, and a palm scan may be required. You will also have to present one form of government-issued identification, and it must show the name you used to register for the test. If you are taking the exam out of the country, you will use your unexpired passport as your form of identification.

After your identification is verified, you’ll be assigned to your station, and provided with a noteboard, booklet, and a wet-erase marker. You are not allowed to bring in any item to the testing room, and you will be asked to empty your pockets.

The Test Administrator (TA) will ask you to place any personal items in a secure location but keep in mind that the TA and facility do not assume any responsibility for your belongings. At the conclusion of the exam, you will return all materials provided back to the test administrator.

Once you enter the testing center and take your seat, you are not allowed to talk to any other test taker. Should you have a question or need additional supplies, you must raise your hand for assistance. Failure to follow the test center rules could result in the cancellation of your test and your registration fee forfeited.


Your score is based on the number of correct answers in each subtest and the proportion accounted for by each section (raw score). The raw score is converted to a scale that will range from 100 to 300. To pass each subtest, you must obtain a score of 220. You will receive an interpretation guide when you receive your score report, so you can identify areas of strength and improvement.

The results of your exam are reported to you, the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, and to any institution that you indicated as a score recipient when you registered.
