2016 CBEST Test Dates & Results Release Schedule

Below is a current listing of the 2016 CBEST test dates for both paper-based and computer-delivered testing. 

The CBEST paper-based test is offered on a limited number of fixed dates.  You can also schedule computer-delivered CBEST testing year-round by appointment during the testing periods listed below.

When selecting your CBEST test date, you will want to ensure you have sufficient time to prepare.  Start by viewing our free CBEST Study Guide for a concise, bullet-pointed listing of exactly which topics appear on your exam, and taking our free CBEST Practice Test to see how you will perform (includes complete diagnostic breakdown of your individual strengths and weaknesses by domain).  These resources will give you a good snapshot of how much preparation time you will need, so you can schedule your test date accordingly.

You should also be aware of the "retake" policy enforced by Pearson (the official testing service).  This policy may affect when you will want to schedule your exam.  For more info on this, as well as helpful advice on how to choose the best test date for your individual needs, please click below...
