How to Register

For detailed instructions on how to register, view “Registration” in the Submission System User Guide (PDF).

  1. Create an ETS account.
  2. Choose your test and submission window. If the test you need to take doesn’t appear when registering, contact us. The registration deadline may have passed but late registration may be available.
  3. Select the state and educator preparation program (EPP) requiring you to take the assessment.
  4. Choose your four free score recipients (to be sent in addition to your EPP). If the state where you’re seeking certification has officially adopted PASL, the state agency will be an automatic score recipient.
  5. Answer the background questions and questions about your clinical experience.
  6. Pay for your test.

You’ll be able to access the assessment through your ETS account when the submission window opens.

If your assessment score falls below the passing score, you’re eligible to resubmit any or all six tasks for a fee. You’re only allowed one resubmission per task during the resubmission window.

The resubmission window immediately follows the reporting of your total assessment scores. See Dates and Deadlines. For instructions on how to register for resubmission, view “Registration Resubmission” in the User Guide.
