NES Exams - National Evaluation Series Courses

As of 2015, if you're trying to become certified to teach at a public school in Arizona, California, Colorado, Illinois, New Mexico, Oregon, Washington or Wisconsin, you'll need to sit for qualifying exams offered by the National Evaluation Series (NES). Our extensive study guides for these exams can help you prepare for entry into the teaching profession.

About NES

The National Evaluation Series (NES) provides a group of exams that are used for a variety of teacher certification purposes throughout the United States. These exams are designed to measure the skills and knowledge that entry-level instructors should have to teach K-12 subjects. There are three main types of NES exams that are available: Content Area Assessments, Professional Knowledge Assessments and Essential Academic Skill Assessments. These exams cover a variety of academic subjects, including early childhood education, biology, social science, music, special education, and middle grades math. NES exams typically consist of multiple-choice and written response question types and passing scores may vary between states.

NES exams are currently used by several states nationwide, including Washington, Oregon, California, Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, Wisconsin and Illinois. Teacher certification requirements differ between states, so be sure to check with your state's teacher certification agency and make sure your NES exams fulfill the requirements that are aligned with your aspirations.

There are over 30 NES exams currently available that may be taken by appointment throughout the year. These exams are administered by computer, and you'll be able to select a nearby Pearson computer-based test center when you register for your exam. Upon completion of most NES exams, you'll receive an immediate score report.

About Study.com NES Courses

We know that studying for a big test can be difficult. That's why we've constructed our NES study guide courses with flexibility and simplicity in mind. Our expert instructors have carefully crafted each lesson to match the concepts that appear on your NES exam. As you work through your course, you'll watch engaging video lessons that break down the material in a way that's easy to remember.

These lessons also come with short self-assessment quizzes to help you reinforce your knowledge as you progress through the course. When you're finished with each chapter, take the accompanying comprehensive chapter exam to commit important concepts to memory.

Your course also includes a dashboard feature that keeps track of your progress and lets you navigate to specific chapter topics. This way, you can always know what you still need to study, and you can go back to certain concepts to review them again. Work through the course from start to finish or jump to the topics that require the most attention. Either way, you'll be studying with maximum efficiency.

To make sure you're fully prepared for your NES test, we've included comprehensive NES practice tests that will get you familiar with the question type, format and difficulty level that you'll encounter on your test day. These practice tests will immediately tell you what you got correct and identify concepts that may require additional study time. And if you ever have any questions throughout your studying experience, simply use the Ask the Expert feature to get personalized help and tutoring.
