Currently certified and practicing Georgia educators are eligible to take the GACE® Teacher Leadership assessment. However, you must confirm or request eligibility to test before you can register.
To confirm or request eligibility to test, create or update your MyPSC account on the GaPSC website, then follow the instructions in the GACE Registration Bulletin about confirming/requesting eligibility.
- Candidates who completed their educator preparation program before July 1, 2014, should select 6 as their reason for testing.
- Candidates who completed their program on or after July 1, 2014, should select 2 as their reason for testing. The GaPSC will provide profile and eligibility information to ETS.
Once your profile and eligibility information has been received by ETS, a Customer Service Representative will create a testing account for you in the registration system for this assessment and notify you via email when it is complete. (Note: It is not the same registration system used for other GACE assessments.)
You will then be able to access your testing account and register for the assessment.
Teacher Leadership, Coaching, and Teacher Support Specialist Endorsement Holders
One of the requirements to earn the Lead Professional Certificate requires passing the Teacher Leadership assessment. Teacher Leadership, Coaching, and Teacher Support Specialists (TSS) endorsement holders who completed their programs prior to July 1, 2014, are automatically granted eligibility to take the Teacher Leadership assessment. Individuals completing programs after that time will be granted eligibility to test by their program providers. Eligibility to test must still be confirmed by following the procedures for confirming/requesting eligibility in the GACE Registration Bulletin.
