NYSTCE Gifted Education Practice Test (064)

It’s an established fact that gifted students have different needs than most. More specifically, their advanced comprehension of their normal classroom curriculum means they need more stimulation and more challenging schoolwork. As a gifted education teacher, it will be your job to meet this need for each of your students in the best way possible.

If you’re planning on teaching in the state of New York, you and all other teachers of various fields will have to take the NYSTCE (New York State Teacher Certification Examinations). The purpose of the NYSTCE is to evaluate your preparedness to teach professionally in your field.

Gifted education teachers in particular will have to earn a passing score on the NYSTCE Gifted Education exam.

Like all of the other NYSTCE subject tests, the NYSTCE Gifted Education exam is timed. Test takers will have an allotment of three hours and 15 minutes, and a total of 91 questions to answer in that time frame. 20 percent of the exam (one question) will require essay answers.

This section of the exam is known as “constructed-response.” The remaining 80 percent (90 questions) is made up of multiple choice (or “selected-response”) questions.

The best way to prepare for this important exam is to get a feel for how it will work. By doing this, you lower the risk of running into any unexpected surprises with the test’s material and can approach it with full preparation.
