PECT Tests

The PECT (Pennsylvania Educator Certification Tests), administered by Pearson Evaluation Systems, are delivered as computer-based tests. Each test includes multiple modules, each with its own passing score. Students may register to take a full test or an individual module. This format allows a candidate to retake a section instead of an entire assessment.
