Washington Basic Skills Requirement
Basic Skills Exam: Washington Educator Skills Test-Basic (West-B)
While Washington requires only an attempt of its own basic skills examination for initial licensure, WGU requires you to pass all three sub-tests (with a minimum score of 240 for each), or complete their approved alternatives listed below in order to meet the WGU Basic Skills Exam requirement.
Alternate Basic Skills Options:
Washington may permit you to use your SAT or ACT exam to satisfy the basic skills exam requirement. Click here for more information on using your SAT or ACT exam for Washington. WGU teacher candidates that will license in Washington may substitute a passing score on one or more sections of the SAT or ACT for the equivalent passing scores on the WEST-B.
To ensure WGU receives your SAT or ACT scores, you must email a scanned copy of your official score report to the Assessments Office at firstname.lastname@example.org, or fax a copy to 1-801-906-5108.
