Assessments for Arizona Educators
In order to become a teacher in Arizona you must take and pass the appropriate Subject Knowledge and Professional Knowledge Examinations or qualify for a waiver of exam requirements. You will also take and pass the Arizona and U.S. Constitution Examination or meet college coursework exemptions. Arizona Teachers of Tomorrow has created resources to help you with this and the information below is from our work with the Arizona Department of Education (ADE).
The exams are administrated by NES in partnership with ADE. You’ll need to use your social security number with all testing in order to process your teacher certification paperwork. If you test in Arizona all scores will automatically be sent to the ADE.
