Missouri Content Assessments

These exams replace the Praxis II series and are required for any candidate seeking educator certification in Missouri.  Effective August 31, 2014, the Praxis II series will no longer be used for Missouri educator certification candidates. 

Candidates must register via the Missouri Educator Gateway Assessments website for these exams.  Fee payments and scheduling of exams is conducted entirely through their website. 

Test Dates and Locations

All MoCA exams are computer-based and administered at the University Testing Center, located in Room 010, on the Lower Level of Duane G. Meyer Library on the campus of Missouri State University.  The deadline for registering for a given exam date is no later than midnight the night before the desired exam date.  We strongly recommend, however, that candidates register for their desired exam date as soon as possible, as there are only ten seats available on any exam date. 

Candidates should plan to arrive approximately 15 minutes prior to exam time, and be able to present a valid photo ID.  Candidates who are more than 15 minutes late for their exam or who are unable to provide a valid photo ID will not be allowed to sit for the exam. 


Registration is completed through the MoCA website.  Fee payments and scheduling of exams is conducted entirely through their website.  Candidates must create an account as part of the registration process.  Please be sure you have received both a receipt from MoCA AND a scheduling confirmation email - if you have only received a receipt of payment, you have not completed scheduling your exam. 

Test Results

Test results are printed at the end of each exam, and can be picked up at the reception desk of the Testing Center upon completion.
