COVID-related testing information:

Testing candidates: Most Pearson Professional Centres (PPCs) are open for exam delivery. We also continue to deliver exams to any third-party test centres (PVTC and PVTC Selects) with the ability to operate, though some may be operating at limited or changed capacity based on their own discretion or in response to government mandates.

Evaluation Systems

Computer-Based Pilot and Field Tests

The Evaluation Systems group of Pearson develops standards-based, criterion-referenced teacher licensure testing programs. Evaluation Systems provides states with a wide variety of teacher licensure services such as test development, administration, and scoring and collaborates with state education agencies and teacher preparation programs to provide support for prospective teachers preparing to take the exams.

This page provides information about pilot testing opportunities across the U.S. Participating in a pilot test of a teacher certification examination enables you to view and respond to test items that may appear on a future test in your state.

Qualified participants receive compensation upon verification of participation. Check back often to see if any opportunities are offered in your area.
