About the NMTA

The State of New Mexico Public Education Department's New Mexico Teacher Assessments (NMTA) program uses custom NMTA tests and National Evaluation Series (NES) tests to measure the content and professional knowledge of individuals seeking educator licensure. NMTA tests include Reading and Assessment of Teacher Competency - Early Childhood, and NES tests include Social Science, Music and Physical Education.

To attain initial licensure under most circumstances, prospective educators must pass Essential Academic Skills (Subtests I, II and III), Assessment of Professional Knowledge for elementary or secondary education and a corresponding content knowledge exam. Early childhood and elementary education candidates along with prospective educational administrators and diagnosticians, school counselors and special education teachers have separate requirements that may include passing these or other tests. Individuals who want to add endorsements to their initial license are required to take 24 semester hours in that specific content area or pass a content knowledge assessment. Gifted education endorsements require 24 semester hours in gifted teaching coursework or 12 semester hours and a passing score on the Gifted Education test.

Both NMTA and NES tests consist of multiple-choice questions with some tests also featuring writing, speaking or constructed-response assignments. Time granted to take tests typically averages 3 hours; however, some tests grant more or less time. The minimum score to pass an exam can range from 220 to 240. NMTA and NES tests are administered by the evaluation systems group Pearson. Tests are available year-round, by appointment, on a first-come, first-serve basis.

We offer courses designed to help you fully prepare for and pass NMTA and NES licensure tests, including:
