PAPA Test Prep Workshops

PAPA Test Prep Workshops

Beginning in April 2012, the PECT Pre-service Academic Performance Assessment (PAPA) will be the means of assessing reading, mathematics and writing skills for undergraduate candidates seeking a state-approved Pennsylvania educator preparation certificate. All undergraduate candidates for initial certification will be required to pass the PAPA as well as the test corresponding to the specific certification area. Candidates seeking Pennsylvania teacher certification must take and meet the qualifying scores of all three modules: Reading, Mathematics and Writing.

Passing the PAPA is required for entry into Teacher Certification courses at four-year colleges. We encourage you to take PAPA after completing 48 credits.
