Deaf education requires an extensive amount of training, all to ensure teachers specializing in the subject are capable of meeting their students’ unique needs. In the state of New York, part of qualifying as a teacher involves earning a passing score on the NYSTCE, also known as the New York State Teacher Certification Examinations. Deaf education teachers in particular will have to score well on the American Sign Language exam.
Naturally, the NYSTCE American Sign Language test will assess your comprehension of ASL. You will be evaluated from both a teaching and fluency standpoint.
