Testing at a Test Center

You can take the ParaPro test at a participating school district, institution or education service center. See a list of ParaPro test centers.

Once you select a test center, contact the center directly to schedule your test appointment.

Note: Each local school district may not have specific test dates or test center information to provide if they are not administering the ParaPro Assessment.

At Home Testing

You can take the ParaPro test remotely on your own computer at home or another secure location. The test is monitored by a human proctor online through ProProctor®, and appointments are available 8 a.m.–5 p.m. ET, Monday through Friday.

Before scheduling an at home appointment, be sure that you meet the equipment and environment requirements for at home testing. If you don’t meet these requirements, you won’t be able to test at home. Once you’ve confirmed that you meet the requirements, you can register and schedule your appointment through ProProctor.
