You are ready to become a teacher in the state of Washington and are made aware that WESTs are required.

What exactly are WESTs all about?

Prospective educators must pass the basic skills test (WEST-B) and an endorsement test (WEST-E) in order to hold a valid teaching certificate in the Washington public school system. The Washington State Educator Skills Tests (WEST) are designed by the Washington Professional Educator Standards Board (PESB) to ensure that educators meet quality standards. The WEST-B was created to ensure that teaching candidates possess basic skills in reading, writing, and mathematics. The WEST-E assessments were created to certify that teaching candidates possess a required level of content knowledge in a specific discipline of study.

WEST-B (Basic)

The WEST-B (Basic) is often required prior to a candidate is officially admitted into a teacher preparatory program. The WEST-B consists of three computer-based exams measuring basic skills in the areas of reading, writing, and mathematics. The Reading portion consists of 60 multiple-choice items assessing the ability to comprehend written text. Two hours is allotted for this portion. The Mathematics section also included 60 multiple-choice items to be completed in a two-hour span. It assesses a candidate’s understanding and application of math concepts and principles. The Writing test includes 50 multiple-choice questions and 2 constructed response items. Three hours are allowed for this measure of the application of standard writing conventions in written language production. These three exams can be taken individually or in one testing session lasting 5 hours. Results are scaled scores ranging from 100 – 300 with 240 being the minimum passing score. Preliminary scores are provided at the test site immediately after completing the exam except for the Writing test. Official score reports will be emailed within 2-6 weeks of testing.

WEST-E (Endorsement)

WEST-E (Endorsement) exams certify competence in a given field. Passing the WEST-E is required prior to student teaching indicating that a candidate demonstrates the required level of content knowledge for endorsement by the state of Washington. Most WEST-E exams contain 110 multiple-choice questions with 2 hours and 15 minutes allowed for completion. Results are scaled scores ranging from 100 – 300 with 240 being the minimum passing score. Preliminary scores are provided at the test site immediately after completing the exam except for the Computer Science and Designated World Language: Latin exams. Official score reports will be emailed within 2-6 weeks of testing.

More detailed information on the content of each endorsement exam can be found on the WEST website at www.west.nesinc.com.

HELLO, I am glad to inform you that I have successfully passed myWEST-B Writing exams, your mock tests were extremely helpful in my journey to this success, thank you once again.

dr farheen,

I am writing to thank you! I passed my WEST-B Writing exam today! I am so happy I used Exam Edge, as it helped prepare me to answer my exam questions and reinforced needed content.

Ron S.,

OMG!! I am estastic! I am a first year teacher, teaching on a temporary certificate. Its a requirement for all teachers in Miami Dade County to pass the General Knowledge test within their first year of teaching. If we do not, we can no longer teach the following school year. Today, I went to take my FTCE for the English Language Skills and Math Portion of the GK test...I have pass both parts!!! Thanks to this website. I took the test twice prior to coming across this site. I used CLIFF NOTES and REA FTCE test prep books....however, I still failed each time. That all changed after coming across this site. The practice test given on here, covers all the skills that are on the actual test. Its worth the money, TEACHERS!!

Precious J.,

I would like to take this opportunity to say that I was very happy with the materials I ordered from Exam Edge in order to prepare for the WEST-B Writing exam. I first of all strongly suggest that one order the maximum number of practice tests, 20 in this case. Take each one the maximum number of times you can (3) and honestly refiew what you missed outright or the items where you merely guessed. It is also helpful to review related text material. A freshman level university textbook covering each subject in which you will be tested is most advisable. I can only say that, having been out of college for 25 years, I scored a 197/200 on my FIRST ATTEMPT. While you will NOT find the practice exams to be verbatim whats found on the actual WEST-B Writing test, you will find that they will help "cut to the chase" and help you to identify your strengths and weaknesses. Of all the WEST-B Writing test prep programs out there, this is the most helpful and most economical package you can buy.

Brandt B.,

Message: I just wanted to reach out to say, Thank you. I passed my WEST-B Writing boards today on the first try after being a year past graduation with no interaction with the field. I have had a lot going on and your program was exactly what I needed to stimulate the forgotten information.

Nedra M.,
