About the Tests
The Missouri Educator Gateway Assessments (MEGA) were developed in alignment with Missouri regulations and content standards for teachers. The Missouri program is composed of the following tests:
- Missouri Educator Profile (MEP)
- Missouri General Education Assessment (MoGEA)
- Paraprofessional test
- Content Area Assessments in each certification field
- Performance assessments for middle and secondary school educators (MoPTA, MoSLPA, MoSCPA, MoLPA)
The ongoing development of the MEGA program has involved the active participation of Missouri educators. By participating on content advisory committees and a bias review committee, they have helped validate MEGA test competencies and test items. Missouri educators also responded to content validation surveys to further assess the relevance of MEGA test content to the job of a Missouri educator.
MEGA/MoGEA/Parapro Dates at Truman
MEGA Content exams are provided through Pearson VUE. MoGEA and Parapro dates are specifically noted. Our site is unable to provide the MoPTA.
MEGA Content Area Assessments Registration
For the Content exams, select the content area from the list and follow their instructions.
To register for your MoGEA or Parapro exam, you will need to visit the exam sponsor’s website. Go through the process of setting up an account. Select the test you wish to take, and pay for the exam. On your account page, there will be a “Current Registrations” button in the right hand navigation pane. Click that link to schedule. Note: entering a zip code or “Truman State University” doesn’t seem to work in their search field. You will need to type the city and state where you want to test and proceed from there. It is important to complete registration in this order because the MoGEA people require the test to be paid for before you have the option of scheduling the exam.
Once registered, you will need to pay the testing center’s administration fee. The administration fee is separate from your test’s registration fee. Per the instructions provided during registration, candidates will not be allowed to sit for their test unless the administration fee is paid prior to the test date. If you are unable to pay the administration fee at the link below, contact us at 660-785-4140 for more information.
What to Bring on Test Day
You must bring a valid, government issued ID bearing a photo and signature (driver’s license or passport) for verification and check-in. Your ID should be printed in English and bear the name you used to register for your exam.
The testing center is not able to issue parking passes. To ensure you are not ticketed, free parking passes may be acquired from the Department of Public Safety. Public Safety is located inside the west entrance of the General Services Building on the corner of Franklin St and Patterson St.
