The Warren County Career Center is a testing site for the Educational Testing Service 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.
The ParaPro Assessment is a general aptitude test that offers certification for paraprofessionals. It also offers an objective assessment of a prospective teacher’s requisite foundation of knowledge and skills and the ability to effectively use those skills in the classroom. Test takers have 2 ½ hours to complete the test. Test subjects include reading, writing and math. The test has 90 multiple-choice questions, approximately two-thirds of which focus on basic skills and knowledge. The remaining one-third focuses on applying skills in the classroom. All test questions are in English. Testing accommodations are available for the test takers whose primary language is not English and test takers who have a disability or health-related need.
