Resources / Placement Tests: Georgia Assessment for the Certification of Educators (GACE)

Georgia Assessment for the Certification of Educators (GACE):

The state of Georgia requires candidates for educator certification to take the Georgia Assessments for the Certification of Educators® (GACE®) as part of the educator certification process. These computer-delivered assessments have been developed by the Georgia Professional Standards Commission (GaPSC) and Educational Testing Service (ETS).

The purpose of the GACE assessments is to assure that the knowledge and skills acquired by prospective Georgia educators are aligned with state and national standards for educator preparation and with state standards for the P–12 student curriculum — the Common Core Georgia Performance Standards (CCGPS).

The GACE website is the best source of information for questions regarding test administration, test preparation, and related GACE issues http://gace.ets.org/.
