WEST Computer-Based Tests Available for Registration

A program-wide expansion to enhance and support the services that are offered for the Washington Educator Skills Tests (WEST) program is underway. All WEST tests will be available on computer as of January 2014. The last paper-based administration for the WEST program will be conducted on October 5, 2013.

Registration is currently available for all paper-based and computer-based tests, including tests that have not yet transitioned to computer-based delivery. Registration is available only on the Internet at the WEST website. See "Internet Registration" for more information.
