Pre-service Academic Performance Assessment (PAPA)
A new Minimum Composite Score Total has been established for the Pre-service Academic Performance Assessment (PAPA).
Please visit the Pennsylvania Department of Education's Certification Testing website for updated information regarding basic skills testing requirements.
The PAPA includes three modules: Reading, Mathematics, and Writing. You may take
one or all three modules at one test appointment. The PAPA series may be passed
by meeting or exceeding the established minimum qualifying score on all three modules (see below), or by the Composite
Tests may include test questions that are being evaluated for future administrations
and that do not affect an examinee's score.
