Paraprofessional Testing

  • The ParaPro Assessment measures the reading, writing and basic math competencies of practicing and prospective paraprofessionals. In accordance with the No Child Left Behind Act, the ParaPro Assessment can be used to certify teacher’s aides and assistants in the instruction of these subjects to school children.

    The ParaPro Assessment is a general aptitude test given on the computer that offers certification for paraprofessionals. It also offers an objective assessment of a prospective teacher’s requisite foundation of knowledge and skills and the ability to effectively use those skills in the classroom. 

    Tests are given at the Clover site one Friday a month at 9:00am (see schedule below) and can be scheduled by calling 803-810-8440.  A fee of $100.00 must be paid (in cash only) at the time of testing.
