GACE® Paraprofessional Assessment: Score Overview
What Qualifies as a Passing Score?
The GACE® Paraprofessional assessment is reported as a scaled score on a scale of 100 to 300. The passing score for the GACE Paraprofessional assessment is 250.
How Do I Know the Unofficial Score is Accurate?
If you test at a participating school district, institution, or Regional Education Service Agency (RESA), your unofficial score will be available onscreen and can be printed at the end of your test.
If you test at a Prometric® test center or at home, your unofficial score will be emailed to you within one hour after taking the test.
Official score reports are mailed approximately one week after the test date. During that one-week period, ETS rescores all Paraprofessional assessments as part of quality-control procedures. In the unlikely event that there's a change in your score as a result of this quality-control check, ETS reports the new score (which may be higher or lower) to you and the GaPSC.
How Do I Get My Scores?
- Unofficial scores for tests taken at participating school districts, institutions, or RESAs are available to view onscreen and can be printed at the end of the test.
- Unofficial scores for tests taken at Prometric test centers or at home are emailed to you within one hour after taking the test.
- Official score reports are mailed approximately one week after the test date.
What Does My Official Score Report Include?
Your official score report contains:
- your name
- pass/no pass score information
- detailed subarea performance
How Do I Interpret Subarea and Objective Scores?
The test questions are grouped into subareas. This helps you identify content areas where further study can improve your score. Your score report shows your "raw points" (number of questions answered correctly) in each subarea and in each objective within that subarea.
