The College Basic Academic Subjects Examination measures students' learning as they prepare to become K-12 l teachers.

About 60 colleges outside those three states also use the CBASE. Only Missouri requires it for teacher licensure.

  • The CBASE is used by the state of Missouri to assess whether prospective teachers are qualified to enter the classroom. Colleges and universities in Missouri encourage students to take the CBASE after their sophomore year of undergraduate study.
  • The CBASE can be taken by students outside of Missouri. Check local colleges to see if the CBASE is offered.
  • The CBASE includes 180 multiple-choice questions in math, English, science and social studies. Some colleges also require an essay.
  • The official CBASE Math Study Guide[1] costs $4.Study guides for other subjects are not available.
