The fifth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5) was published in May 2013 with revisions to the criteria for the diagnosis and classifications of mental disorders. In the interest of fairness, and to allow time for educator preparation programs to integrate such changes into their curricula, test materials for this assessment will continue to reference the terminology, criteria, and classifications referred to in the fourth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-IV-TR) until further notice.
Interactive Practice Tests
Use the interactive practice tests to prepare for the Early Childhood Education assessment. Each full-length practice test allows you to practice answering one set of test questions to simulate what you will experience on the actual 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.
A practice test for each subtest in the Early Childhood Education assessment is available for purchase through the ETS Store at $15 per subscription. Note: There is only one version available for each test title, so each time you take the test, you answer the same questions in the same order. Retaking or repurchasing the same practice test more than once does not give you different practice questions or change the order in which the questions are delivered.
