About the GACE® Paraprofessional Assessment

The GACE® Paraprofessional assessment measures the skills and knowledge in reading, writing, and math possessed by prospective and practicing paraprofessionals. It also measures their ability to apply those skills and knowledge when assisting in classroom instruction. The GACE Paraprofessional assessment has 90 selected-response questions, approximately two-thirds of which focus on basic skills and knowledge. The remaining one-third focuses on applying skills in the classroom. Learn more about the test content.

The assessment is administered by appointment in participating school districts, Regional Education Service Agencies (RESAs), and other agencies, and is given in a computer-delivered format.
