CSET Foundational-Level General Science Practice Test
Prospective teachers who wish to become certified in General Science will need to take the CSET Foundational-Level General Science examination as developed by the Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC). The CSET Foundational-Level General Science practice test will assist you in your studying for the examination. Note that the subject of integrated science will only certify you to teach this subject matter through grade 8. You will need a passing score of 220 on each part of the CSET examination, which will be given in two subtests.
CSET Foundational-Level General Science subtest #118 will include 58 multiple choice questions in the subject areas of Astronomy, Dynamic Processes of the Earth, Earth Resources, Waves, Forces and Motion, and Electricity and Magnetism. CSET Foundational-Level General Science subtest #119 will test you with 58 multiple choice questions in the subject matter areas of Ecology, Genetics and Evolution, Molecular Biology and Biochemistry, Cell and Organismal Biology, Heat Transfer and Thermodynamics, and Structure and Properties of Matter. Use the CSET Foundational-Level General Science practice questions to prepare for the multiple choice questions, as well as 4 short, focused, constructed response questions in each subtest.
This examination is only available in the computer-based format. You won’t need to bring a calculator with you. The examination allows you to use an on-screen scientific calculator. Don’t worry if you are not familiar with it. A tutorial will guide as to how it works. You will also be given a copy of the periodic table before taking each subtest. The testing center will provide you with a response sheet at the testing center. This is provided for a few of the questions where you will need to handwrite your answers out in long-hand. A tutorial will guide you as to how to scan and submit your response sheet. The computer-based program for CSET Foundational-Level General Science gives you a full 2 hours to complete each subtest. You can take both tests at one time if you wish, but you will still only get a total of 4 hours to complete both tests. If you take them both at the same time, the time clock will not stop if you need to take a break. You might consider taking the subtests separately, but on the same day so that you can take a break in between them.
