Test Preparation Resources
Study Companions familiarize you with the competencies to be tested, test question formats, and pertinent study resources. There is a Study Companion available for each of the GACE® assessments.
Interactive Practice Tests (IPTs) are full-length practice tests that allow you to answer one set of test questions to simulate what you will experience on the day of the test. After you complete the practice test, you can see if you answered questions correctly or incorrectly and get explanations for the correct answers.
There is only one practice test with one set of test questions for each GACE test; retaking or repurchasing the same practice test more than once does not give you different practice test questions or change the order in which the questions are delivered.
IPTs are available for all GACE tests and can be purchased through the ETS Store. When you register to test, you will be offered the option to select and purchase the IPT that matches the test title(s) you are registering for. If you choose to purchase the IPT, the cost will be added to your registration fees so that both the test registration and the IPT can be purchased in a single online transaction.
NOTE: The GACE® Study Companions and IPTs are the only GACE study materials endorsed by the GaPSC. Other preparation materials may not accurately reflect the content of the assessment or the policies and procedures of the GACE program.
Tutorials walk you through how to use the Alternate Character Toolbar for the French, German, and Spanish assessments and the Online Calculator for assessments that require the use of a graphing or scientific calculator, allowing you to practice using these tools before test day.
Test Familiarization Videos provide information about how to get ready to take a test and what it's like to take a test.
Webinars walk candidates and teacher preparation faculty through the different parts of the GACE assessments, inform participants about available test preparation resources, and give them the opportunity to ask questions and have them answered by ETS-certified trainers.
A study plan can provide a roadmap to help you prepare for a GACE assessment.
