So, let’s get started.

How do you pass the FTCE Elementary Education K-6 (060)?

In order to pass the FTCE Elementary Education K-6 (060), you will need to pass all four of the subtests (Language Arts and Reading, Social Science, Science, and Mathematics) with a scaled score of at least 200 per subtest. This means that you will need to answer approximately 70% or more of the questions correctly on each subtest.

How hard is the Elementary Education K-6?

The K-6, like most FTCE exams, is challenging and has about a 63% average passing rate across all the subtests. The first time you take the K-6 (060), you need to take all four subtests. This might feel like a lot, as it takes almost five hours to complete the full test. But don’t worry; there’s some good news. If you don’t pass a subtest, you can register again and take the subtests separately.

We recommend reading through the guide and taking note of the concepts that you think you will need to review. It is also helpful to use the results of practice tests to guide your study plan.

How do you study for the FTCE Elementary Education K-6 (060)?

Fortunately, all the information that you need to review for the FTCE Elementary Education K-6 (060) will be beneficial to you once you start teaching. So, how should you study? Well, after you familiarize yourself with the structure of the test and have read a basic overview of each subtest, try some sample questions from each subtest. You can try 240 Tutoring’s timed diagnostic assessments for each subtest: Language Arts and Reading Practice Test, Social Science Practice Test, Science Practice Test, and Mathematics Practice Test. This is a good way to identify your strengths and weaknesses and determine just how much studying you will need to do. Review the correct responses and take notes of the areas you need to brush up on. Chances are there will be some subtests where you might need more practice than others. You can focus on the weaker areas, but don’t neglect the stronger ones! Then, develop a study plan that includes the resources you plan to use and the schedule you want to follow.

When should you study for the FTCE K-6 (060)?

Everyone has their own method of studying. You might need to study more each day if you are starting to study just a few weeks before the K-6. It’s always a good idea to study for at least 30 minutes a day and at least a few times a week to ensure that the content stays fresh in your mind. And it’s helpful to study at the same time every day so that it becomes part of your routine.
