PECT/ETS Testing

Basic Skills Assessment Options Chart

  • Students who need to take all or part of the Basic Skills Assessment tests -- It is recommended that you take the PAPA Math and Core Reading and Writing.


ETS Testing  (secondary, middle level, PK-12 & Core Academic Skills -- Interactive Practice tests available for purchase)
PECT Testing (PK-4, PK-8 Special Education, 7-12 Special Education & PAPA)
ACTFL Testing (Foreign Languages)

*Caution: Make sure that scores will be sent to PDE & Wilson College! 

  • Harrisburg is the closest PA ETS testing site and if you go to a PA testing site, scores are automatically sent to PDE. If you chose to go to a Maryland testing site, the scores will go to Maryland Dept. of Education. Believe you can send scores to 4 other recipients when registering. You will want to select Wilson (RA2979) and PDE! If you don't, you will then have to pay ETS an additional a fee to have them sent to PDE.
  • Not sure if PECT allows you to select PDE or if it is automatically sent. However, PECT has a Chambersburg testing site, among others. Strongly recommend that you take PECT tests at a PA testing site!
  • For ACTFL, believe the scores are not automatically sent to any Dept. of Education, so select PDE if possible. If not, you will need to contact ACTFL to have them sent to PDE.
