You have almost completed your teacher education journey. The final hurdle is the NES examination to become certified. What are the NES exams?

What is the National Evaluation Series (NES)?

The National Evaluation Series (NES) teacher certification tests are delivered through Pearson’s network of computer-based test (CBT) centers. Aligned to national subject and pedagogy standards, these standards-based tests are taken by individuals pursuing certification as entry-level teachers. NES test scores are currently acceptable for certification in Arizona, California, Illinois, New Mexico, Oregon, Washington, and Wisconsin. NES provides for interstate portability of test results and simplifies candidate comparisons between states.

NES offers exams ranging from Essential Academic Skills (Reading, Writing, Mathematics, and Social Sciences) to Professional Knowledge at both the elementary and secondary levels, Elementary and Early Childhood, Middle School and Secondary level specialty areas, and K-12 areas of specialization. Exams required for certification vary from state to state. The NES website can be helpful in determining which tests best meet your needs for certification.

The format for most of the NES exams is multiple-choice with the results provided at the testing site upon the completion of the test. Some tests may include constructed response items. The results of these are available within four weeks of the exams. Scores are scaled from 100 to 300 with 220 being the national benchmark, although the state benchmarks may differ. The length of each exam fluctuates according to the individual test. These time allowances are available at the NES website.

I took a sample exam everyday for three weeks, studied the material and was confident and prepared to pass the exam. I will be recommending your site to others wanting an excellent preparation resource to prepare with successful results. Thank you!!!


I am writing this to inform you and anyone else who is thinking of purchasing these practice questions that they were the best investment I made as far as time and money. I had failed my NES School Counselor exam twice, and after practicing these test, about 20 of them, I was more than prepared to pass the test. These test prepared so well, I commented to a friend of mine that the practice test was like studying at Harvard and the real test seem like high school. I will continue to study the test for future reference because they have a wealth of information for any first year teacher. Thank you,


I purchased the NES School Counselor and passed my certification exam the first time. The exam questions were great and I felt fully prepared for my test.
