For Test Takers
Important Note about Registration
Once you have obtained approval to test from the GaPSC or your program provider (if applicable), you can register through your ETS GACE testing account.
Before you complete your test registration, make sure you are registering for a GACE test. If you get routed to the Praxis® website for any reason, please call ETS Customer Service at 1-855-225-7178 immediately. DO NOT register for a Praxis test unless it is your intention to do so. A customer service representative will assist you with registering for the appropriate GACE test.
The GACE® Assessments
The state of Georgia requires candidates for educator certification to take the Georgia Assessments for the Certification of Educators® (GACE®) as part of the educator certification process. These computer-delivered assessments have been developed by the Georgia Professional Standards Commission (GaPSC) and Educational Testing Service (ETS).
The purpose of the GACE assessments is to assure that the knowledge and skills acquired by prospective Georgia educators are aligned with state and national standards for educator preparation and with state standards for the P–12 student curriculum — the Common Core Georgia Performance Standards (CCGPS).
