Paraprofessional Assessment

 The GACE Paraprofessional Assessment is for prospective and practicing paraprofessionals and measures skills and knowledge in reading, math, and writing, as well as the ability to apply those skills and knowledge to assist in classroom instruction.

The test consists of 90 selected-response questions and is timed for 2 1/2 hours.
Scratch paper and pencil will be provided.

You cannot retest within 28 days. If you attempt to retest within the 28 day waiting period, you will forfeit your test fee.

You can view and print your unofficial scores at the end of the test. Official score reports are mailed approximately one week after the test date. Scores are also reported to the Georgia Professional Standards Commission (GaPSC).  Your official score report provides your passing status.

Cost: $60. Payment is due when you schedule your appointment.

Acceptable IDs include passport, government-issued driver's license, state ID, or military ID.
