Everything you need to know about California Certification Exams!

What is CTC?

The California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC) oversees the administration of teacher certification exams in the state of California. CTC includes a number of exam groups such as CBEST, CSET, RICA, CTEL, and CPACE. Check out this article to learn more about CTC exams!

What California teacher certification exams do I need to take?

The CTC has developed exams to make sure that prospective teachers meet specific requirements before getting certified to teach in California. Some of the tests cover basic teaching skills, while others focus on specific subject areas. Which CTC test you need to take depends on where you are in your schooling and which grades you are getting licensed for. Learn more about which CTC exam you need to take using this article.

How do I register for my CTC exam?

The CTC tests are first come, first served, so if you wait too long to register, you might have to choose a different time. You can check the dates a test is offered on the California Educator Credentialing Assessments website here. Check out this article to learn more about registering for your CTC exam.

What’s a passing score for the California certification exams?

CTC exams are scored based on the type of questions included in each exam. Multiple-choice questions are scored by a computer and scores are verified before your results are reported. Check out this article to learn everything you need to know about CTC exam scores.

What happens if I fail my CTC exam?

If you fail your CTC exam you have the option to retake the exam. You must wait 45 days from the date you initially took the test before retaking a test. You can retake a test or subtest as many times as you need to. Learn more about the CTC retake policy here.

How much does a CTC exam cost?

Each CTC exam has a different registration fee. Some exams are offered as either computer-based or paper-based, and each option might have a different cost. Some CTC exams have different subtests, and you will need to register and pay for each one. Check out this article to learn more about CTC exam costs.
