When it comes to understanding today’s students, certain aspects require more study and understanding than others. One of those aspects is the media they consume on a daily basis. Media in and of itself has become extremely prominent as of recent decades, and is constantly changing in terms of format and availability. By paying close attention to how modern youth interacts with the media they’re exposed to, educators can also understand how they view and interact with the world around them.

Becoming a media specialist is no easy feat, however. On top of devoting themselves to years of training in the field, specialists across the country typically will have to pass some sort of final test.
In Georgia, this test is the GACE (Georgia Assessments for the Certification of Educators) exam. Media specialists specifically will have to earn a passing score on the GACE Media Specialist exam before they can launch their professional careers.
Because this particular field is so specialized, the GACE Media Specialist test itself is fairly complex to match. You will find it divides into two sections: Tests I and II.
The test’s overall formatting will typically consist of 80 multiple choice (“selected-response”) questions per section, as well as individual time allotments of two hours. As a whole, the test will take four hours to complete.
Each of the exam’s subtests come with their own unique subject areas.
Test I deals with:
- Collection Development (40 percent)
- Learning and Teaching (60 percent)
Test II will focus on:
- Information Access and Delivery (30 percent)
