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. If you’re not currently enrolled in an EPP in the state you’re seeking certification in or you’re a teacher of record taking the assessment to meet reciprocity requirements during your first year of teaching, select the state you’re seeking certification in and then "Prepared out of state” in the drop-down.
  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 student teaching experience.1
  6. Pay for your test.

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


Resubmission registration

If your assessment score falls below the passing score, you’re eligible to resubmit any or all three tasks (Task 2, 3 or 4) for a fee during two resubmission windows for your registration. You’re only allowed one resubmission per task during each resubmission window.

The first 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.
