Content Knowledge

Note: Questions about an individual's certificate or testing status should be directed to the OSPI Certification office.

The Professional Educator Standards Board requires the successful completion of a content knowledge exam prior to being certified to teach in a particular subject area. These assessments test the endorsement competencies adopted by the PESB.

Please note: Each program is allocated a certain number of vouchers for the WEST-B and WEST-E test takers. Contact your program for more details.
