What to Expect
The CSET Mathematics exam consists of 100 multiple-choice questions: 35 on Subtests I and II and 30 on Subtest III, and 8 constructed-response questions: 3 on Subtests I and II and 2 on Subtest III. The test is administered via computer.
You should expect to see three main types of questions: single-answer, stimulus-based, and cluster. You should expect most questions to require you simply to click an oval next to the correct answer. They may ask you to zoom in on details in a graphic or picture, click boxes next to all that apply, click on checkboxes, click on parts of a graphic or sentence, use a drag and drop feature, or select your answer from a drop-down menu.
