Computer-Based Testing

Pearson delivers millions of high-stakes tests each year through its global network of test centers in 180 countries. And all using state-of-the-art technology. The NES teacher certification tests are delivered through Pearson's worldwide network of computer-based test (CBT) centers.

Many of Pearson's CBT centers are 100% dedicated to testing and have been awarded a patent for their unique security design, which features biometric verification of test takers.

Pearson CBT centers are located throughout the United States, its territories, and worldwide, offering test takers a comfortable, convenient testing experience while ensuring the highest levels of service, security, and consistency.

Online Proctoring

Online proctoring allows you to take your test securely from your home, school, or business. With just a simple check-in process—involving ID verification, face-matching technology, and a live greeter—you can test without having to travel to a test center.

Note: Due to technical requirements, certain NES assessments may not be offered via online proctoring and will continue to be available via computer-based testing only. For example, tests that require the use of a scanner and tests that include an audio component cannot be administered via online proctoring.
