Select any step to learn more about your PASL assessment journey.


Understanding Your PASL Scores

Your PASL score report contains valuable information about your performance, including:

  • a summary page indicating your score for each task and your cumulative score for the assessment
  • a detail page for each task indicating scores for each step within a task and feedback for each step score

See a Sample Test-taker Score Report (PDF).


Passing scores

Each state and licensing organization determines its own passing requirements for the PASL assessment. If a state agency hasn’t established a passing requirement, individual educator preparation programs (EPPs) may determine this requirement.

If your state or educator preparation program isn’t listed below, contact your EPP.

Steps with a score of 0

A step score of 0 will be applied for any of the following:

  • The written commentary for an entire step is missing.
  • The text in all textboxes for a step doesn’t address the activity and guiding prompts.
  • The required artifacts for an entire step are missing or illegible. A step that requires multiple artifacts needs to have at least one artifact attached to the step to be scoreable.
  • The artifacts for an entire step fail to provide the required evidence or are unrelated.
  • The artifacts or commentary included links to artifacts on a third-party site; these aren’t acceptable.
  • The required video is missing.
  • The video didn’t meet the requirements found in the Candidate and Educator Handbook.

Reviewing feedback for step scores

Each task of the assessment contains multiple steps. Your score report includes general feedback for each step score within a task to help you improve the quality of your evidence in your step responses, and help you determine if you want to resubmit a task.


After you receive your score, there are two resubmission windows for your registration. If your assessment score falls below the passing score, you are eligible to resubmit any or all three tasks for a fee. See Resubmitting Your Tasks.


What to do if you didn't pass

If you didn’t pass the assessment during the original submission window or the resubmission window, you’ll need to retake the assessment in a future submission window. Consult your EPP for guidance on how to move forward.

1 The national recommended passing score established by a panel of educators through a multistate Standard Setting Study is 42.
