Official Score Reports

Your official score report will be e-mailed to you from the testing vendor approximately 4-weeks following your test date. Save these e-mails in a dedicated and safe folder; if lost or deleted, you will have to either pay the test vendor for a new copy of the score report or retake the test.

Ordering Additional Score Reports
Test and edTPA Scores on WebAdvisor

If you have selected Lewis & Clark as a score recipient, your score reports will be received by the graduate school approximately 4-weeks after your test date. Once received, scores will be entered into the student database so you can then view them on WebAdvisor (under “Test Summary”).

If you have received your official score report from the testing vendor but your scores do not yet appear on WebAdvisor (under “Test Summary”), please contact the Graduate Admissions office.

Your score report from the testing vendor contains your official score and test status (pass or not pass). If you see a discrepancy between your score report and the test status on WebAdvisor, please contact the Graduate Admissions office.

Effective April 6, 2017, TSPC has changed the passing score for all NES subject area tests to 220. (This change does not apply to the ORELA: Civil Rights and Administrator tests nor to Praxis Subject Assessment tests.)

Effective July 1, 2015, TSPC no longer requires a basic skills test for initial educator licensing in Oregon; however, other states may require this test.
