Choosing Your Test Date
Passing the ParaPro is generally required to demonstrate your essential knowledge and skills prior to being a classroom aide.
Begin by learning the deadline your prospective employer or educational institution has set. Then check the current test dates and results release schedule. Select a date that ensures your results will be available in time.
Make sure you also allow time to retake the test if you don't pass on your first attempt. You can retake the exam as many times as you need, but keep in mind that you must wait 28 days between attempts.
Plan to take the exam as early as possible, while still giving yourself enough time to prepare. To work out how much study time you need, view our free ParaPro Study Guide to see what content is covered on your exam. Then take our free practice test to see how you’ll perform and identify any areas where you need to improve.
