Important Updated Information! 

The last paper-based administration of the CBEST in Oregon was held on June 11, 2011.

Beginning June 21, 2011, the National Evaluation Series (NES) Essential Academic Skills (Reading, Writing, and Mathematics subtests) is the basic skills test preferred by the Oregon Teacher Standards and Practices Commission (TSPC). However, the TSPC will continue to accept CBEST scores to fulfill the basic skills requirement for initial licensure in Oregon. Computer-based administrations of CBEST will continue to be offered in Oregon.
