Missouri initial licensure program candidates completing demonstration teaching from Fall 2015 to Spring 2018 must complete Missouri Pre-Service Teacher Assessment (MoPTA) as a requirement for recommendation for an initial Missouri credential. This coursework is part of the WGU teacher preparation program. If you have any questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
