Missouri Educator Gateway Assessments

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:

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.

Missouri Pre-Service Teaching Assessment (MoPTA) Registration

To register for a 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 requires the test to be paid for before you have the option of scheduling the exam.

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.
