PASSING THE FTCE GENERAL KNOWLEDGE TEST

Getting Started

Before you work through this book, we strongly recommend that you visit the Florida Teacher Certification Examinations website at www.fl.nesinc.com. There you’ll find the most current information on the exam, including registration information, testing sites, testing format, test-day advice, registration cost, and FTCE-developed test preparation materials.

An Overview of the Test

Who Takes the Test, and What Is It Used for?

The FTCE-GKT is used by the State of Florida to assess knowledge of teacher certification candidates. If you do not achieve a passing score on the FTCE-GKT, don’t panic. You can take the test again, so you can work on improving your score in preparation for your next administration.

About Computer-Based Testing

The FTCE-GKT is offered only on computer at flexible times and locations throughout the year. Minimal computer and typing skills are required to complete the computer- based tests. You need to be comfortable with a Windows environment, using a mouse (including clicking, double-clicking, dragging, and scrolling), and typing at a rate that will allow you to complete the assignment in the allotted time (approximately 30 words per minute).

In computer-based testing, examinees complete the tests by selecting answers on-screen to multiple-choice questions and typing or recording a response to a performance assessment component. The FTCE-GKT requires the examinee to type a response to the essay assignment.

When Should the FTCE-GKT Be Taken?

The FTCE-GKT is usually taken immediately before the completion of a teacher certification program at a college or university. This gives candidates enough time to retake the test if necessary. Our practice tests will familiarize you with the format of the exam so that you do not have to go through the anxiety of learning about the FTCE-GKT during the actual exam.

When and Where Is the Test Given?

The FTCE-GKT is administered at various times and locations in Florida and in select cities nationwide. To find a testing center near you, visit the official website: www.fl.nesinc.com.

The registration bulletin for the FTCE-GKT contains test dates and administration sites. You may obtain a registration bulletin by contacting:

FTCE/FELE Program
Evaluation Systems Group of Pearson
PO Box 226
Phone: (413) 256-2893
Amherst, MA 01004
Website: www.fl.nesinc.com

Is There a Registration Fee?

Yes, you must pay a fee to take the FTCE-GKT. Fee waivers are available for candidates who are unable to afford registration. You must be enrolled in a college undergraduate program and must prove that you are required by a registered score recipient to take the exam. Details regarding income eligibility levels are contained in the registration bulletin.
