Early Childhood Education tests: Birth–PreK and Age 3–Age 8

Two new National Evaluation Series early childhood education tests will replace the NMTA Assessment of Teacher Competency—Early Childhood test on December 4, 2017.

As of December 4, 2017, New Mexico candidates seeking the Early Childhood Education Birth–Age 3 or Early Childhood Education Age 3–Age 8 license must take the NES test that aligns to the license they are seeking.

The two new NES tests are:

  • NES Early Childhood Education (Birth–Prekindergarten)
  • NES Early Childhood Education (Age 3–Age 8)
For further information about which tests to take, please contact the New Mexico Public Education Department.
