Washington Educator Skills Tests (WEST)

Test center closings due to COVID-19 (coronavirus)   

As COVID-19 continues to spread globally, our first priority is the health and safety for employees and candidates. Where state and local guidance permit, Pearson VUE-owned test centers (PPCs) are open and available for testing.  Testing will resume for the remainder of the state as soon as allowable under state and local orders.  

Please check your email often as circumstances continue to change.  If you have not received email notification of your test appointment being changed, you should plan to attend as many of our partner sites, some of which may be located at colleges and universities, are making the determination to close or remain open based on their state and local guidance.  

Pearson is regularly updating COVID-19 information on a dedicated webpage.    

To schedule or reschedule a test appointment:   

Please note that only test centers that are open will appear in the seat availability tool and during the scheduling process.    

If you are ill on the day of your test appointment:   

Do not report to the test center.  If you miss your appointment due to illness, please review the absentee policy for emergency circumstances, which includes information about requesting a refund.   

If your appointment was rescheduled by Pearson, you may withdraw your registration for a full refund.     

Please check the withdrawal and refund policy for more information.
