GACE® Paraprofessional Assessment

GACE® Paraprofessional Assessment


We are now able to offer your GACE Paraprofessional assessment at our Adamson Square Location

 with the following Covid-19 restrictions: 

1.      You must wear a face mask into the building and at all times while testing.

2.      You will be required to maintain a 6 foot distance from other testers.

The GACE® Paraprofessional assessment measures the skills and knowledge in reading, writing, and math possessed by prospective and practicing paraprofessionals. It also measures their ability to apply those skills and knowledge when assisting in classroom instruction.

This assessment is taken by prospective and practicing paraprofessionals to demonstrate that they are knowledgeable in reading, writing, and math, and that they are capable of assisting in classroom instruction.

Test takers have 2½ hours to complete the assessment.

Subjects include reading, writing, and math.

The test has 90 selected-response questions, approximately two-thirds of which focus on basic skills and knowledge. The remaining one-third focuses on applying skills in the classroom. All test questions are in English.

The Paraprofessional assessment is given in a computer-delivered format.
