It helped me pass on the first time. It gave me the confidence I needed. I highly recommend it.
240Tutoring is AWESOME!
I wanted to inform you that with you tutoring program, I passed my test on the second try 2 weeks ago. I have been raving to all of my colleagues who have remaining tests to take on how your services assisted me so much. I have to say that I showed them what your services provided and they loved it. Again this has been a great help. As long as I have the opportunity to keep telling people about your services, I will keep telling them to log onto 240tutoring. I failed the test the first time in March but passed it in April just studying the material from your tutoring material. Thank you again!
Having taken my last social studies class over 12 years ago I was very worried about the content exam which was required to teach. After speaking to a 240 Tutoring representative I decided to give it a try. Upon studying the first section of the guide I was hooked! It is organized extremely well and flows like a well written book! I will definitely use 240 Tutoring again to become certified in many more areas!
Thanks to 240Tutoring I'm a teacher now. If it wasn't for the questions that were similar to the real exam questions, I would have not passed. I was committed to passing and 240Tutoring helped me do that. 240tutoring is a great study guide and I recommend teachers and future teachers to sign up.
I bought the study guide four days before my exam. Did every problem on the study guide and scored a 277!
I am so grateful for 240Tutoring. It was such a wonderful resource to help me prepare for my teacher certification exams. I love the practice tests. They really helped me to assess the areas that I needed to focus on more when it came to studying. I highly recommend 240Tutoring to all of my peers and any student studying of their teacher certification exams!
3rd time is the charm!!!

The Florida Teacher Certification Exam (FTCE) tests are part of the teacher certification process in the state of Florida. The certification process is designed to support the academic achievement of Florida students by ensuring all educators are professionally qualified for highly effective instruction. The FTCE is a three-part series that includes the General Knowledge Test, the Professional Education Test, and a Subject Area Examination. To succeed in this series, teacher candidates must pass all three parts of the exam.
The FTCE is used throughout the state of Florida. Teacher candidates in a university certification program or alternative certification program must pass the FTCE in order to become certified. Teacher candidates certified in other states must also complete FTCE certification exams in order to become licensed in Florida.
Candidates enrolled in a Florida teacher preparation program may take the exam as early as possible. Candidates from other states or countries must first apply for temporary certificates prior to completing exams. This ensures that candidates register for and complete the exams most appropriate for their desired certification area.
The testing requirements and timeline will vary for candidates depending on the state-approved teacher preparation programs in which they are enrolled. There are several potential avenues a teacher candidate may take to becoming certified in Florida depending on his or her background. See the Teacher Education Program Guidelines for details, and see below for general guidance.
Candidates pursuing alternative certification should visit the FDOE site for guidance.
Once reviewed, candidates will be approved for testing and will receive guidance on which exams they must complete. See the Out-of-State Certified Educators page for additional information.
Candidates pursuing an education degree from an out-of-state teacher preparation program must pass the FTCE in the subject area for which they are seeking certification. This requirement may be filled through out-of-state certification credentials.
The structure of the FTCE exam is a three-part series. Candidates must demonstrate mastery of General Knowledge, Professional Education, and Subject Area content knowledge. To gain licensure, examinees must pass all three parts of the exam.

For specific information regarding the topics assessed in each subject area examination, see the FTCE test preparation guide and select your SAE from the list provided.
Beginning to Prepare
Beginning to prepare for the FTCE exam starts with understanding the test you need to take and the timeline for your preparation and testing dates.
Select score reporting options. During registration, you may select school districts and colleges/universities to which you would like to send your score reports. You can send additional reports at a later time, but it is more efficient to select your recipients during registration.
It is important to develop a study plan as part of your preparation for the FTCE assessments. Each test contains many content areas, skills, and question types with which examinees should be familiar. The amount of time an examinee should spend study will depend on their familiarity with the content and skills assessed.
A general study plan should include the following:
After creating your study plan, you need to begin studying! Using 240Tutoring’s preparation guides, you can begin learning more about the content and types of questions on each exam and completing practice questions using The 240Tutoring Testing Approach.
By identifying patterns in your performance, you can adapt your study plan to hone in on the areas in which you need to improve most.
For incorrect answers, be sure to read the answer explanation. You will see why each answer choice is correct or incorrect, and may notice details about the questions and answer choices that you did not notice in your first attempt. Reading explanations of incorrect answers ensures that you learn from your mistakes as you progress.
Your preparation plan does not end with studying—you should also have a test-day plan. This includes strategies such as taking a few days off from studying before the exam, taking care of yourself physically leading up to the exam, and looking up maps and directions in advance to ensure you arrive early to your site. You should also consider strategies to reduce test anxiety to be sure that your hard work and preparation are not overshadowed by nerves on test day.
You must arrive 30 minutes before your appointment time. If you arrive even a few minutes late, the test site may not be able to accommodate you. If you are not admitted, you will not receive a refund. You should allow plenty of time to arrive before the designated time, and should prepare by checking weather and traffic conditions in advance.
You must bring two valid and unexpired forms of identification printed in English. You will not be permitted to test without proper identification.
Online calculators are included in the testing software, so calculators are prohibited.
For more information about what you may or may not bring to the test center, see the FTCE Policies for test day.
By now, you should be familiar with what to expect on the exam. All that is left to do is complete it, but that may not be as simple as it sounds once the test is in front of you.

Throughout the test, remember what you have learned, maintain a steady pace, and keep calm!
At the end of each test, you have the option to report or cancel your scores. If you choose to report your scores to a certification institution, you will not be able to cancel them at any point and they will become an official part of your record. If you choose to cancel your scores, you will be unable to report your scores and they will never be reinstated to your testing record. Cancellation does not result in a refund.
Except for extreme circumstances, such as severe physical illness or overwhelming anxiety, it is not recommended that you cancel your scores.
Official Score Reports
Official score reports are posted to examinee accounts on the score report date according to the score report schedule. Tests are typically available within 4-6 weeks depending on the format of the exam. For multiple-choice only exams, examinees receive an unofficial pass/non-pass status at the end of the exam.
Scores are automatically sent to the districts and institutions selected at registration. Examinees may request additional copies of score reports, if needed, and may access their score reports through their account for 60 days after the score report release data.
You will receive an official score report after your testing date. Your score report explains your score and whether you passed or failed. Test results are reported using a scaled score. So, what is a scaled score?
Your raw score and percentage of correct answers on the FTCE and FELE are converted to a common measure called a scaled score. A scaled score allows multiple forms of a test to share a common minimum passing score.
The minimum passing scaled score for tests, subtests, or sections consisting of only multiple-choice questions is 200.
For additional help interpreting your scores, see this guide.
Retaking the Exam
In the event that you do not earn a passing score, you may retake the test to attempt it again. The Florida retake policy indicates that you must wait 31 days to retake any exam or part of an exam. In order to retake the exam, you need to re-register for the exam, so do so as quickly as possible. Take action immediately to be sure you meet your certification deadlines!
