Certification Requirements for Teachers, Counselors, Librarians, Principals, and Superintendents

Missouri Content Area Exams are exit assessments designed to measure the content necessary for teachers, counselors, librarians, principals and superintendents. The exit assessments must be aligned with state and national standards for school and/or district leaders.

The Missouri Content Assessments replaced the Praxis II Content Assessments beginning on September 2, 2014.

Additional information about certification requirements for Missouri teachers, administrators, student services personnel, and substitute teachers is available on DESE’s certification website.
