GACEĀ® Assessments Offered

The following is a list of the GACE® assessments offered.

  • Some assessments contain more than one test. You can take each test separately, or you can take a combined version that includes all of the tests within that assessment.
  • Each test can include selected-response (SR) questions, constructed-response (CR) questions, or a combination of both. CR questions may be written, spoken, or signed.
  • All assessments are computer-delivered, except for the Assessment of Sign Communication-American Sign Language (ASC-ASL), which is performance-based.
  • Testing time is the timed part of the actual test.
  • Test duration is the testing time plus any time allowed for tutorials and directional screens that may be included in the test.

Before registering for a GACE assessment, check which assessment you need to take for your certification and also review the Eligibility Requirements. More information about educator testing requirements can be found on the GaPSC website.

To find out when your test(s) will be offered and when scores will be reported, see GACE testing windows and score reporting dates.
