PAPA Tutorial

  • Beginning in April 2012, the PECT Pre-service Academic Performance Assessment (PAPA) will be the means of assessing reading, mathematics, and writing skills for undergraduate candidates who want a Pennsylvania educator preparation certificate.

    Undergraduate candidates are required to pass the PAPA and the test corresponding to their certification area. If you are already certified and adding another certificate, you only have to take the test(s) corresponding to the new certification area.

    We’ll be adding more information soon, so check back for updates.
