These tests are used to assist education programs at various colleges and universities in the state of Missouri in deciding which applicants to accept in their respective programs. Any aspirant teachers that want to have a successful career in the state of Missouri will need to do well on this assessment in order to be accepted into a college program, and gain a beneficial education.
The Reading Comprehension and Interpretation, Mathematics, as well as Science and Social Studies tests are entirely made up of multiple-choice questions, while the Written test will only be one written assignment.
Each test will be an Internet-based test, or IBT, that can be taken at various locations within the state of Missouri. Testing centers can be found in the following Missouri cities: Arnold, Canton, Cape Girardeau, Cedar Hill, Columbia, Fayette, Ferguson, Fulton, Hannibal, Hillsboro, Joplin, Kansas City, Kirksville, Maryville, Moberly, Neosho, Park Hills, Parkville, Point Lookout, Poplar Bluff, Raytown, Rolla, Sedalia, Springfield, St. Joseph, St. Louis, St. Peters, St. Robert, Trenton, Warrensburg, and West Plains. Prospective test-takers can register for the MoGEA on the MoGEA website.
The Missouri General Education Assessment is offered throughout the year; however, it is a first-come, first-served basis for the testing slots. The test-taker can find available dates within the registration process. It would be beneficial to register early to ensure that the test-taker can be placed within a time slot of their choosing.
The test can be taken as a whole or the test-taker can choose to take each subtest individually. The test will be in English; however, if the test-taker needs extra time due to a language barrier, disability, or other reason, they can fill out the request form, found on the MoGEA website, to extend the time allotted to take the test. The request form will need to be submitted at the same time as the test-taker’s registration.

There is not a specific passing score for the MoGEA; however, each education program has its own passing score that it requires prospective students to obtain. The one requirement that is mentioned by the makers of the MoGEA is that each program must have a passing score for each subtest of the MoGEA. If the test-taker fails to meet the expected score of the program they wish to enter, retesting is an option. To retest the test-taker must wait 30 days before being allowed to take the test again. Similar to taking the test the first time, the test-taker will have the option to either take all the subtests at once or to take each subtest separately. Whenever the test-taker wishes to retest, they must fill out the registration form once again.
The fees for the MoGEA exams tests are $25 each, when taken individually. Registering for two of the exams costs $50, three of the exams would cost $75; however, if the test-taker registers for all four it will cost $49 (and when registering for multiple exams, they all must be taken at the same time). Cancelling a registration is allowed and 100 percent of the test fees will be refunded if the cancellation is made at least 24 hours prior to the test date. During registration, test-takers can select up to as many institutions as they wish to receive a score report for free.
Whenever the test-taker registers for the MoGEA, they will be asked to agree to the specific rules and policies designed by the test-makers. These policies can be found on the MoGEA website. If the test-taker does not adhere to these specific rules and policies, the testing company reserves the right to invalidate the test-taker’s scores. The test administrator reserves the same right if the test-taker does not adhere to the rules established by the administrator on test day.
