post Post    

The College Basic Academic Subjects Examination measures students' learning as they prepare to become K-12 l teachers. Administered by the Assessment Resource Center at the University of Missouri, it's primarily used by colleges in Missouri, Kansas and Iowa. About 60 colleges outside those three states also use the CBASE. Only Missouri requires it for teacher licensure.

Typical costs:

  • The cost of the CBASE test itself varies by institution, ranging from $50 to $60.
  • 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.

  • The CBASE is primarily offered through colleges and universities in Missouri, Kansas and Iowa and is a requirement to become a teacher in Missouri. Students typically take the CBASE after their sophomore year of college.
Additional costs:
  • There is a $15 fee to reschedule the exam.
  • There is a $10 charge to send CBASE scores to other colleges.
Discounts:

  • The Assessment Resource Center, which manages the CBASE, offers a free CBASE study guide[2] .
Shopping for the cbase:
  • There isn't much study material directly applicable to the CBASE. Students should check with their academic counselor to see if recent study guides for other teacher certification examinations, such as the PRAXIS II, can aid with preparation for the CBASE.
