College BASE will not be administered as an entry assessment for Missouri teacher preparation programs after December 31, 2013. Students who have not successfully passed all subtests on December 31, 2013, will be required to take the new general education assessment for admittance into an educator preparation program.
The College BASE (C-BASE) exam is required for admission to the teacher education program for all undergraduate students seeking state teacher certification. Students must earn a composite score of 235 and pass the five subsections with a score of 235 for admission.
Required for all undergraduates and all students pursuing elementary certification.
Approximately four weeks after test administration, each examinee and the examinee's institution of enrollment receive score reports containing a summary of scores and a guide to score interpretation. Score reports and passing status are not released over the phone or via email or FAX. Scores reflect the degree to which the examinee has mastered the specific skills addressed by College BASE.
The School of Education is unable to provide you with an official score report. You must request your score report by following the process linked below.
According to policy established by the State Board of Education, students have two years from the semester when they first pass part(s) of College BASE to achieve passing status in all five parts. Students who do not complete the College BASE requirement within two years lose their passing status in all areas passed and must retake the entire examination.
