Reasons for Testing

A GACE® assessment can be taken for any of the following reasons. You must indicate your reason for testing in your MyPSC account.

Depending on your reason for testing, you may need to specify who else you want to receive your scores. You may add up to three score recipients as part of your test fee. Scores are automatically sent to the GaPSC. See below for score recipient information pertaining to your reason for testing.

Reason NumberReason for TestingScore Recipient Information
1 I am testing to satisfy the Program Admission assessment requirement. You must add the program you are enrolled in or seeking admission into as a score recipient.
2 I am enrolled in or have completed a Georgia-approved program and have obtained eligibility from my program provider to take a content assessment and/or the Program Exit level of the Georgia Educator Ethics or the Georgia Ethics for Educational Leadership assessment. Note: GaTAPP candidates should not ask for eligibility to take the Program Exit level of the Georgia Educator Ethics or the Georgia Ethics for Educational Leadership assessment. Your provider will grant eligibility at the appropriate time and you will receive an email with the information needed to register. Your scores will automatically be sent to the GaPSC and the program provider granting approval to test. You do not need to add them as a score recipient.
3 I am taking a content assessment to gain eligibility for employment and plan to complete a state-approved program such as GaTAPP, a certification-only program, or a Master's degree with a certification program embedded. You must add the program you are enrolled in or seeking admission into as a score recipient.
4 I am enrolled, or plan to enroll, in an out-of-state (non-Georgia) certification program, excluding Educational Leadership, and am taking a content assessment and/or the Program Entry or Program Exit level of the Georgia Educator Ethics assessment or the Program Entry or Program exit level of the Georgia Ethics for Educational Leadership assessment to meet Georgia's certification assessment requirements. Your scores will automatically be sent to the GaPSC. You do not need to add them as a score recipient.
5 I am taking a content assessment to add a field to my valid teaching certificate or Certificate of Eligibility. Your scores will automatically be sent to the GaPSC. You do not need to add them as a score recipient.
6 I am testing because the GaPSC informed me of a required educator assessment, or my reason for testing is not covered by the reasons above. Your scores will automatically be sent to the GaPSC. You do not need to add them as a score recipient.
7 I am taking the Program Entry level of the Georgia Educator Ethics or the Georgia Ethics for Educational Leadership assessment (candidates enrolled in out-of-state programs need to select Reason 4). You must add the program you are seeking admission into as a score recipient. Your scores will automatically be sent to the GaPSC. You do not need to add them as a score recipient.
