What NES teacher certification exams do I need to take?

How do I register for my NES exam?

Registering for the NES exam is different for each state. Some states have you register on the NES website, while others send you to a state website. Learn more about registering for NES exams in this 240 article.

What’s a passing score for the NES certification exams?

The NES is scored using a scaled score ranging from 100 to 300. The national benchmark for NES exams is a score of 220. States that require or use NES exams can choose their own passing score. Check with your state to find out what benchmark they use.
