Scores Overview

How Tests Are Scored

All GACE® test results are reported as scaled scores on a scale of 100 to 300.

Selected-response sections of GACE assessments are scored once at the test center, transmitted electronically, and then verified at ETS before being reported. Each constructed response is scored by trained, supervised raters who follow strict scoring procedures.

The American Sign Language Proficiency Interview (ASLPI) is rated by a team of evaluators, and examinees are awarded an overall proficiency level on a 0–5 rating scale. These ratings are then converted to the GACE score scale of 100–300.

See information about how the Educator Ethics, Paraprofessional, and Teacher Leadership assessments are scored.
