How To Prepare For (And Pass) The MEGA

Blackboard Teaching vectors

Do you need to take a MEGA exam but aren’t sure how to prepare for it? Wondering how hard it is to pass the exams or how much time you’ll need to spend studying? Looking for the best resources for studying and trying to understand how to use your study guide? You’re in the right place. This article will answer all your questions about preparing for your MEGA exam.

What is a Passing Score on the MEGA?

When your test is scored, the raw score (how many questions you answered correctly) is converted into a scaled score (a standardized score ranging from 100 to 300.) Your scaled score will tell you whether or not you passed your MEGA exam.

For most MEGA exams, you’ll need a scaled score of at least 220 to pass. This includes the Paraprofessional exam and all of the Missouri Content Assessments. The Elementary Education Multi-Content exam includes four subtests, and you have to score at least 220 on each subtest.

There are two exceptions to the 220 passing score: the MoGEA and the MEP. Let’s take a look at each of these:

For the MoGEA, different Missouri educator preparation programs will have different minimum score requirements. Your program might have a passing score requirement of 220, but it could be higher or lower. Check with your specific program for its MoGEA score requirements. Note that the Science and Social Studies subtest (069) is no longer a testing requirement for program admission, so you only need to take and pass the other three subtests within the MoGEA based on your program’s passing standards.

For the Missouri Educator Profile, or MEP, there is no minimum score requirement. You don’t pass or fail the MEP. The MEP is an internet-based survey that assesses your personal work and teaching styles. The questions on the MEP do not have right or wrong answers. Because of this, there is not a passing score for the MEP.

How Hard is the MEGA?

Many test-takers are surprised at how difficult a MEGA exam can be to pass, even after studying and taking college courses. Passing rates vary for each MEGA exam and change from year to year. For the Missouri Content Assessments, recent passing percentages range from 39% to 94% depending on the specific exam. MEGA exams are not easy, but with the right preparation and 240 Tutoring Study Guides, you can pass your exam with confidence.

How Do You Study for the MEGA?

How do you study for the MEGA

When you start studying for your MEGA exam, you’ll first want to create a timeline and schedule for yourself. Think about how often you’ll be able to study and set aside specific dates for studying. Next, head over to our MEGA Study Guide page to find the specific study guide for your MEGA exam. You can study the exam topics in any order, but it can be helpful to start with the topics you feel the least confident in. That way you’ll have plenty of time to improve in those areas. If you’re not sure what your areas of weakness are, try taking the diagnostic assessment to see what you’re struggling with. Once you feel confident in all areas of the test, you can try the practice test that’s included in your study guide. The practice exam is designed to be similar to the real exam. It’s even timed, so you’ll know how quickly you’ll need to work through each problem. Your score on the practice exam will give you a good idea of whether or not you should keep studying.

When Should You Start Studying for the MEGA?

It’s never too early to start studying for your exam. Whether you’ve already registered for your exam or you’re just beginning to look into taking a MEGA exam, 240 Tutoring is a great place to start! Check out our guide to studying effectively.

What If You Fail the MEGA?

If you receive a score that does not meet the passing score requirements, the good news is you can take the test again. There is a 30-day waiting period to observe before retaking an exam. Use this time and the information from your score report to target areas you need to review before registering for and taking the test again.
