Tips for Taking the ParaPro Assessment

FAMILIARIZE yourself with the test before taking it. Read the information and look at the types of questions and the test format. Some helpful resources are the ParaPro Assessment Study Companion or ParaPro Assessment Study Guide and Practice Test.

READ the directions carefully.

CONSIDER all answer choices before marking one.

PACE your activities. Know the total number of test questions and time allowed for the entire test. Work rapidly without being careless. Don't spend too much time on difficult questions.

GUESS rather than not respond at all. There's no penalty or subtraction of points for answering a question incorrectly. You risk nothing by guessing, but if you don't respond, you lose the chance to raise your score by making an educated guess.

MARK your answers clearly, and give only one answer per question.

REVIEW your answers if you finish early.
