2.5 hours are given to complete both Test I and Test II, with 30 minutes built in to each test for computer tutorials. Both tests assess not only basic knowledge and skills across the content area of chemistry, but also the ability to apply these principles in a classroom setting.
Each test is made up of 60 selected-response questions, such as matching, multiple choice and/or true-false questions. Most tests also include some selected-response questions, which are not included in the actual test scoring, but are used to determine test-taker performance.
Test I is divided into 3 subareas:
- Scientific Inquiry, Processes, Technology and Society, which is worth 32% of the total score
- Nature of Matter and Energy, which is worth 40% of the total score
- Nomenclature, Chemical Composition, and Bonding and Structure, which is worth 28% of the total score
Test II is divided into 2 subparts:
- Periodicity and Chemical Reactions which is worth 52% of the total score
- Solutions and Solubility and Acid-Base Chemistry, which is worth 48% of the total test score
Testing windows are offered during the months of October, February, April and June. Test results are available approximately 2 weeks after specific test dates.
