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 Score Reported on the Screen is Accurate?

After finishing the test, you can view your unofficial score displayed on the computer screen. 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?

  • You can view and print your unofficial scores at the end of the test.
  • Official score reports are mailed approximately one week after the test date.

What Does My Score Report Include?

Your score report contains:

  • your name
  • score(s)
  • 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.
