You have almost completed your teacher education journey. The New York State Teacher Certification Examinations are your final hurdle. What are the NYSTCEs?

New York State Teacher Certification Examinations (NYSTCE)

The New York State Teacher Certification Examinations (NYSTCE) are mandated by the New York State Education department and administered by Pearson. The NYSTCE measure a candidate’s knowledge and skills necessary to perform the responsibilities of an educator in the New York public schools. Prospective educators seeking certification must achieve passing scores on the EAS (Educating All Students), the edTPA (Teacher Performance Assessment) and a CST (Content Specialty Test).

The Educating All Students (EAS) exam is a computer-based test evaluating a candidate’s ability to work with diverse student populations. The EAS consists of 40 selected-response and 3 constructed-response items. The test time allotted is 2 hours and 15 minutes. Test scores range from 400 to 600 with 520 being the minimum passing score.

The Content Specialty Tests (CST) quantify an individual’s knowledge of a specific subject area. Generally, CST are 3 hours and 15 minutes and contain 90 selected-response exercises and 1 constructed-response item. The language CST include a listening and speaking component. The minimum passing score for the CST is 520.

Scores for both the EAS exam and CST will be emailed within 2 to 3 weeks of the testing date. More details for the EAS exam and the CST can be found at www.nystcenesinc.com.

The edTPA (Teacher Performance Assessment) is a portfolio of artifacts used during a candidate’s clinical experience. These lesson plans, video clips, student work, etc., include the candidate’s commentary justifying the instructional rationale for its selection. These portfolios are evaluated across five scoring components of teaching: planning, instruction, assessment, analysis of teaching, and academic language. You must go to www.edtpa.com to register and submit a portfolio for scoring. Your score profile will be emailed to you and will include rubric scores for each of the five scoring areas. Pass/fail information will not be supplied on this profile as requirements may vary from state-to-state or program-to-program. The edTPA website offers specific information on these requirements.

I was very apprehensive about taking my exam since I am squeamish when I take any exam. After using your practice tests, I went into the NYSTCE CST Literacy exam with a lot of confidence feeling at ease. I would not have been ready for the kind of questions that were on the exam if I hadn’t used your practice tests. I just wish I knew about this program years ago when I took my other exams and was not as prepared as I would have been if I used your product. Thank you so much!

karen,

I took the NYSTCE CST Literacy exam today and passed!!!! The sample exams with detailed explanation was the key to my success. I took a sample exam everyday for three weeks, studied the material and was confident and prepared to pass the exam. I will be recommending your site to others wanting an excellent preparation resource to prepare with successful results. Thank you!!!

Sandy,
