Test II 45,Combined Test I and Test II 90, Question Format The test consists of a variety of short answer. questions such as selected response,questions where you select one answer. choice or multiple answer choices depending,on what the question asks for questions. where you enter your answer in a text box,and other types of questions You can review.
the possible question types in the Guide to,Taking a GACE Computer delivered Test. Number of Constructed response Questions Test I 0,Combined Test I and Test II 0. The GACE Mathematics assessment is designed to measure the professional knowledge of. prospective teachers of 6 12 mathematics in the state of Georgia. This assessment includes two tests You may take either test individually or the full assessment. in a single session The testing time is the amount of time you will have to answer the questions. on the test Test duration includes time for tutorials and directional screens that may be included. in the test, Note After clicking on a link right click and select Previous View to go back to original text. GACE Mathematics Assessment Study Companion 4, The questions in this assessment assess both basic knowledge across content areas and the. ability to apply principles, The total number of questions that are scored is typically smaller than the total number of.
questions on the test Most tests that contain selected response questions also include. embedded pretest questions which are not used in calculating your score By including pretest. questions in the assessment ETS is able to analyze actual test taker performance on proposed. new questions and determine whether they should be included in future versions of the test. Content Specifications, Each test in this assessment is organized into content subareas Each subarea is further. defined by a set of objectives and their knowledge statements. The objectives broadly define what an entry level educator in this field in Georgia public. schools should know and be able to do, The knowledge statements describe in greater detail the knowledge and skills eligible for. Some tests also include content material at the evidence level This content serves as. descriptors of what each knowledge statement encompasses. See a breakdown of the subareas and objectives for the tests in this assessment on the. following pages, Note After clicking on a link right click and select Previous View to go back to original text.
