Teacher Education Entrance and Exit Exams
Starting July 1, 2024, the Praxis tests will replace the MoGEA and MoCA requirement. Details coming soon. All passing MoGEA and MoCA scores will continue to be accepted for certification.**
An entrance exam is required for all undergraduate teacher certification programs. Click here to learn about the different entrance exam options.
All students seeking teacher, student services, or administrative certifications must earn a passing score on the appropriate content assessment. The MoCA must be attempted prior to student teaching (some programs require that it be passed prior to student teaching).
Students who meet certain criteria are eligible for a partial fee waiver when registering for the MEGA Assessments (MoGEA & MoCAs). For more information, visit the MoGEA and MoCA Fee Waiver website.
