All teacher education applicants must complete a competency examination, as required by the Nebraska Department of Education. CEHS students take the CORE exam, which measures basic skills in reading, writing, and mathematics and is designed to determine if applicants are ready academically to pursue education studies.
How are CORE results used?
CEHS uses the test to help make admission decisions to the teacher education program. Additionally, the Nebraska Department of Education uses the test as part of the certification process.
How is the CORE given?
The computer-based test is offered by appointment Monday through Saturday, during specific testing windows at Prometric Testing Centers. You must register on-line at https://www.ets.org/portal/site/iserpraxis/. Reading and mathematics scores are reported to you as soon as you finish the test. The written test results take 3-4 weeks to receive.
