ParaPro Assessment

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.

ParaPro is a part of the ETS Praxis program. It is administered on computer in participating school districts and in a paper-pencil format on some Praxis test dates at some centers. Contact your local district’s administrative office to determine which option is available to you.

Note: Your local school district may not have specific testing center/test dates information to provide if they are not administering the ParaPro Assessment. In this case, please contact ETS at for a list of institutions and school districts in your area. ETS will identify locations near you that offer the test.
