NYSTCE Family and Consumer Sciences Practice Test (072)

It is a widely known fact that in order to understand students, professionals must also understand the facets of society that influence them. For the majority of youth out there, this includes the media they consume and the households they live in. Because children are exposed to these two influences on a regular, daily basis, it is up to educators to understand them so they can in turn work out how to best meet their students’ needs. This is why Family and Consumer Sciences professionals are so important to the educational field.

Before you can start your career as a Family and Consumer Sciences expert, however, you must first pass an official exam as mandated by your state. New Yorkers specifically will have to pass the NYSTCE Family and Consumer Sciences exam.

Like its sibling tests, the NYSTCE Family and Consumer Sciences exam is timed. Test takers will have approximately three hours and 15 minutes to complete 91 questions.

One of these questions will require an essay response (“constructed-response”), while the rest are multiple choice (“selected-response”). These answer categories account for 20 percent and 80 percent of the test’s full content, respectively.
