ETS ParaPro Assessment

The ETS Paraprofessional Assessment consists of 90 multiple choice questions, 30 in each of the following subjects: reading, writing, and math. Approximately two-thirds of the questions in each subject area focus on the application of those skills and knowledge in a classroom context. Fifteen of the questions in the test (five in each subject) are pretest questions and do not count toward the candidates score. Individuals must score 461 or higher to pass the assessment for Washington. You are allowed 2.5 hours for the test. Please allow at least 3 hours total to include any possible issues.
