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 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!
I purchased the GACE ECE study guide because I needed a structured approach to studying for the test. I was overwhelmed with all of the content that needed to be studied but 240Tutoring made it easy and manageable. When I went to take the GACE I felt confident and prepared. I passed the exam on my first try! I have already recommended 240Tutoring to several people who are about to take the GACE ECE.
It helped me pass on the first time. It gave me the confidence I needed. I highly recommend it.

The Georgia Assessments for the Certification of Educators (GACE) are part of the teacher certification process in the state of Georgia. These certification exams are designed to assist the Georgia Professional Standards Commission (GaPSC) ensure that teacher candidates have the knowledge and skills necessary to become educators in Georgia’s public schools. Developed by the GaPSC and Educational Testing Services (ETS), the GACE assessments are aligned with the P-12 state and national standards. Each assessment measures the material taught in Georgia public classrooms.
Anyone seeking certification as a highly qualified educator in Georgia must pass the GACE in order to become certified. Candidates need to pass the GACE if they are seeking admission to an educator preparation program, seeking certification in the state of Georgia, and/or seeking to become highly qualified in a core academic subject. Teacher candidates certified in other states must also complete GACE certification exams in order to become licensed in Georgia.
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 Georgia depending on his or her background. See below for a description of each:
Candidates pursuing alternative certification should visit the GaPSC site for guidance.
Formerly called the Basic Skills Assessment, the GACE Program Admission Assessment measures an individual’s general knowledge in the areas of reading, mathematics, and writing. A passing score on this assessment indicates that a candidate has the competency levels necessary to be successful in an educator preparation program.
Who should take it?
Permit holders applying to extend or renew their initial permit.
GACE Content Assessments measure a candidate’s knowledge and skills in the content area in which they are seeking certification. These assessments ensure that teachers are highly qualified to teach in their subject area.
Who should take the GACE Content Assessment?
Some applicants for Adjunct licenses.
The structure of the GACE exam is a three-part series. Candidates must demonstrate mastery of Program Admission Assessment knowledge and content knowledge to gain licensure. Mastery is measured in the form of two assessments:
For specific information regarding the topics assessed in each subtest, practice questions, or preparation materials, see the GACE Program Admission study companion.
For specific information regarding the topics assessed in each subject area examination, see the GACE test preparation page and select your content assessment from the list provided.
Beginning to prepare for the GACE exam starts with understanding the test you need to take and the timeline for your preparation and testing dates.
It is important to develop a study plan as part of your preparation for the GACE 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 studying 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.
There are several steps you need to take prior to arriving at the test site to ensure you are set up for admission to the testing center test day.
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 GACE 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.

Score Reporting Dates
Scores are released at the close of the testing window. Scores for the Program Admission Reading (200), Mathematics (201), and the combined Reading and Mathematics (700) are reported within 7 days after the test.
Scores for the Program Admission Writing (202) and the Writing section of the combined test (700) are reported within 28 days after the test date due to manual scoring processes.
For the most up-to-date calendar of score-reporting dates, see this chart provided by ETS.
Sending and Canceling Scores
When registering for the GACE, you will have indicated which institutions or programs you would like to send score reports. At the end of each test, you may choose up to 3 additional score recipients within the state of Georgia (included in your testing fee). Additional requests will result in additional score reporting charges.
At the end of a 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 exam. Examinees will receive an email notification when official score reports are available.
Understanding Your Scores
Your official score report explains your score and whether you passed or failed. Test results are reported using a scaled score.
Your raw score and percentage of correct answers on the GACE 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.
Your official score report contains information about your performance on your most recent exam and your performance over time. It also provides a detailed overview of the points earned for each section, as well as a Pass/Not Passed determination. For a detailed list of everything included in your score report, see the guidance provided by ETS.
The minimum passing scaled score for tests or subtest varies. See the table below for specific requirements by assessment:
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 attempt the test again. You must wait 30 days to retake any exam or part of an exam.
If you take a combined assessment and only pass one of the subtests, you will only need to retake the single subtest you did not pass. Once you have achieved a passing score on all subtests, you will have passed the entire assessment.
When registering for a retake, you should access your ETS GACE testing account to register. 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!
