Each and every Georgia teacher must take the GACE (Georgia Assessments for the Certification of Educators) exam for their field before starting their professional careers.
In your case, you will be taking the GACE Program Admission exam for the opposite reason. You can’t start off your official teacher’s certification training without first earning a passing score on this exam.
The Program Admission exam will gauge how prepared you are to enter your certification program of choice.
As such, the GACE Program Admission test is fairly complex, and covers much of the same materials as your standard entrance exam. It splits up into three subtests.
For Test I, you’ll be given 56 selected-response questions and 85 minutes to answer each of them.
Test II solely features 56 selected-response questions, which you’ll have 85 minutes to finish.
Finally, Test III is composed of two “constructed-response” (essay) questions, and 40 “selected-response” (multiple choice) questions, with a time allotment of 100 questions.
As a whole, the Program Admission test has 154 questions and a four and a half hour time span.
Furthermore, each subtest features different subjects, or “subareas.”
Test I concentrates on reading, its subjects including Integration of Knowledge and Ideas (35 percent); Craft, Structure, and Language Skills (30 percent); and Key Ideas and Details (35 percent).
The mathematics-oriented Test II deals with Statistics and Probability (20 percent); Number and Quantity (30 percent); Geometry (20 percent); and Algebra and Functions (30 percent).
Test III is writing-based, and focuses on Language and Research Skills for Writing (40 percent), and Text Types, Purposes, and Production (60 percent). The latter subject is composed entirely of constructed-response questions.
