Are you wanting to become a teacher in Indiana? If so, you need to keep reading to learn about the Indiana CORE.
The Indiana CORE exams are required for all public school teachers. Before you take yours, you need to know how many questions are on the exam and what kind of questions you can expect. As you study, you’ll need to know if there are any essays, or constructed-response questions (CRQs), on the Indiana CORE exams. And most importantly, you need to know what the best resources are to help you prepare for your test.
Are you ready to get started?
All of the Indiana CORE exams contain multiple-choice questions, and some of them will also contain constructed-response questions. Depending on the exam, the number of questions will vary from 40 to 180.
To find out the number of questions on your exam, visit the Indiana CORE Assessments testing website. Then click on your test. The first section of the test description, entitled “Format,” will include the number and types of questions. Check out the table below to see the breakdown of some of the most common CORE exams.
Every Indiana CORE test includes multiple-choice questions. Each question has four possible answers and you must choose the best answer. You can explore the multiple-choice questions from reputable practice tests to get a feel for the types of questions you will encounter on these exams. 240 Tutoring offers test information and overviews of many CORE exams that include free practice tests.
Some tests have constructed-response questions, or CRQs, which will require a typed response to a provided prompt. Look for example CRQ prompts for your specific test on the Indiana CORE Preparation page. You can use these prompts to practice writing full responses.
There are a few Indiana CORE exams that include CRQs. The tests that cover writing or foreign language generally have these. Check this list (or look down below) to see if your test will include CRQs.
The best resources you can find will not only help you prepare for the material on the test but will also prepare you for what the test will look like on the computer. Consider all aspects of the test; for example, the Indiana CORE testing website provides a tutorial to help you get more comfortable with the computer-based testing software.
