MoGEA Passing Score Requirements

 

MoGEA Passing Score Requirements

WGU's minimum score requirements for the subtests of the MoGEA are:

 

 

Old MoGEA (offered until 8/31/2015)

 

 

New MoGEA (after 8/31/2015)

 

 

English Language Arts (001): 203

 

 

Reading Comprehension and Interpretation (66): 220

 

 

Writing (002): 193

 

Writing (67): 193

Mathematics (68): 220

 

Science (004): 202

 

Science and Social Studies (69): 220

 

Social Studies (005): 202

 


Note about required scores on MoGEA subtests: Candidates must pass subtests in all of the content areas, and Missouri will accept passing scores from both the "old" and the "new" versions of the MoGEA to meet this requirement. Candidates who passed either Science (004) or Social Studies (005), but not both, must pass Science and Social Studies (69).

Other Accepted Basic Skills Exams

  • Praxis Core Academic Skills for Educators (Core)
  • Praxis I PPST
    • If you are enrolled in a Middle Grades science program (BASC9, PBSC9*, or MATSC9*) you cannot use one of the "Other Accepted Basic Skills Exams" to meet certification requirements. Rather, you must pass the MoGEA taken after 8/31/2015.

 

Unacceptable Exams:
WGU does not accept the CBASE to satisfy the Basic Skills Requirement. The Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education has phased out the CBASE exam for admission to colleges approved for teacher education in Missouri. 

 

Submitting Scores to WGU
To ensure that WGU receives your scores and posts them to your degree plan, you must fax a copy of your official score report to the Scores Department at 1-801-906-5108 or email a scanned copy to scores@wgu.edu


*As of 8/1/2017, WGU is no longer enrolling students in the PBSC9 or MATSC9 programs.
