Students who wish to enter the Teacher Education Program


Students must pass all parts (English Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies and Writing) of the Missouri General Education Assessment (MoGEA).

Questions on the Missouri General Education Assessment (MoGEA) reflect the broad range of knowledge that most Universities and colleges, including junior and community colleges, expect their students to acquire by the end of the sophomore year. The test emphasizes though processes; broad concepts; and major figures, movements and institutions. Because of the breadth of the examination, you should not study for Missouri General Education Assessment (MoGEA) the way you do for a test in a specific course. If you have successfully completed a typical lower-division course of study, you should be well-prepared for this examination.
