Tips for Taking the GACE® Paraprofessional Assessment

Familiarize yourself with the test before taking it. Some helpful resources with information about the test, the test format, and the types of questions you may encounter are the GACE® Paraprofessional Assessment Study Companion and the GACE Paraprofessional Assessment Interactive Practice Test.

Read the directions carefully.

Consider all answer choices before selecting one.

Pace your activities. Know the total number of test questions and time allowed for the entire test. Work rapidly without being careless. Don't spend too much time on difficult questions.

Mark questions you need some extra time to think about and come back to them later.

Guess rather than not respond at all. There's no penalty or subtraction of points for answering a question incorrectly. You risk nothing by guessing, but if you don't respond, you lose the chance to raise your score by making an educated guess.

Review your answers if you finish early.
