Subject Area Exam

Schedule during admission process

Your Subject Area Exam is scheduled at time of preliminary acceptance. A delay in taking the Subject Area Exam will hinder your receipt of the Eligible Statement of Eligibility which is required prior to being fully enrolled and starting the eight intensive lessons.

Best practices in teaching for improved student achievement (including pedagogy, instructional tactics, strategies, and measurements) are included in the TeacherReady curriculum, but they are not specific to your subject area (e.g., math, science, etc.).  It is important that you prepare for this exam using study materials.

Frequently Asked Questions:

When do I need to take the three state certification tests?

You must take your Subject Area Exam upon enrolling in your prerequisites, your General Knowledge Exam during TeacherReady Lesson 1 or 2, and the Professional Education Exam during TeacherReady Lesson 7 or 8. We highly recommend study guides for each of the three tests.

How do I register and prepare for the Florida Teacher Certification Exams?

You can find testing centers and register for the 3 Florida Teacher Certification Exams (FTCEs) by visiting this link: https://wsr.pearsonvue.com/testtaker/registration/SelectTestCenterProximity/FLDOE/232594.

While the TeacherReady curriculum will cover some of the content in the exams, it is very important that you used independent study materials to prepare for these exams. We have compiled a list of recommended resources for test preparation: https://www.teacherready.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/11/FTCE-Study-Guide-Information-Packet.pdf.

 

 

Do I need to travel to Florida to take my three state certification tests?

Not in most cases. The Florida Department of Education has contracted with Pearson Testing Centers across the United States and on some US overseas military bases to offer the certification tests. However, not all testing centers offer the FTCE exams. A list of testing sites is available at http://www.fl.nesinc.com/FL_TestSites.asp.

How much does it cost to take the state certification tests?
