NYSTCE Practice Tests by Exam Edge | Updated 2020


NYSTCE image

Becoming a teacher is not easy. After four (or sometimes more) years of school, internships, student teaching, and other hurdles, prospective teachers face one final challenge: an exam. Such tests result in many unique certifications based on geographical location, subject matter expertise, and federal standards.

Navigating this maze of certifications is difficult, but important. All teachers are subject to both federal and state level certification to ensure their competency and understanding of what they teach. In the state of New York, educators are subject to the New York State Teacher Certification Examinations, or NYSTCE. Thankfully, NYSTCE practice tests are available to help prospective teachers achieve the scores they need to pass.

Who Should Get It?

The NYSTCE certification is required for any and all prospective teachers in the state of New York, whether they go through a traditional degree path or a lateral entry program. Additional certifications and exams are required for school principals, technology specialists, and district-level administrative staff.

Most NYSTCE tests are computer-based and run around two hours with a mixture of selected and constructed response questions. Taking NYSTCE practice tests is a great way to familiarize oneself with the format of the exam.

What Are the Most Common NYSTCE Exams?

All New York State Teachers complete two basic exams. The first is the Educating All Students (EAS) test, a baseline exam that tests a teacher’s core pedagogy and competency. The second is a Content Specialty Test, or CST. CSTs focus on the specific subject (Math, Science) and/or student audience (deaf and hard of hearing , visually impaired) that an applicant wants to teach. Bilingual certification - which can give new teachers a significant advantage in the job market - requires its own BEA certification. No matter which version of the test you need to pass, NYSTCE practice exams can help prepare you for the real thing.

Score ranges and minimum passing scores vary based on the test, but the most common EAS exam requires a 520 in a range of 400-600.
