The Computer Science assessment (555) is comprised of one test.
The test preparation materials below are the only GACE® study materials endorsed by the GaPSC. Other preparation materials may not accurately reflect the content of the assessment or the policies and procedures of the GACE program.
Note: The GACE Computer Science assessment is being updated to reflect current trends in the field of computer science. It is scheduled to be launched in October 2018 and will replace the existing assessment. The Test at a Glance for the updated assessment is available below. The study companion will be available in August 2018.
This free download is designed to familiarize you with the content material to be tested, test question formats, and pertinent study resources for this assessment.
Test at a Glance
This preparation resource gives you a quick overview of the assessment and includes:
- Assessment name
- Grade level
- Test code(s)
- Testing time
- Test duration
- Number and types of questions
- Subareas and approximate percentage of the test
- Test objectives
Interactive Practice Tests
Use the Interactive Practice Test (IPT) to prepare for the Computer Science assessment. The practice test allows you to answer one set of test questions to simulate what you will experience on the day of the test. It is approximately the same length as the actual test; however, the questions in the IPT are sample questions and do not appear on the actual test. After you complete the practice test, you can see if you answered the selected-response questions correctly or incorrectly and get explanations for the correct answers. Feedback is not provided for the constructed-response questions.
The practice test for the Computer Science assessment is available for purchase through the ETS Store at $18 per subscription. Note: There is only one version available for each test title, so each time you take the test, you answer the same questions in the same order. Retaking or repurchasing the same practice test more than once does not give you different practice questions or change the order in which the questions are delivered.
