CSET Home Economics Practice Test

Home economics is something of a rare subject within the United States—at least where academics are concerned. The main reason for this, in many schools, is because of budgeting. It’s simply more economical to focus on core subjects and sports; however, this forces just as many other important subjects to the wayside. Home economics easily becomes a case in point. This class teaches and has taught many students how to take care of their future households, as well as many other related life skills that will see them through their pending adulthoods.


As an aspiring home economics teacher, you know just how significant this class is in shaping students’ lives in seemingly the smallest of ways. Luckily, schools in the state of California care about this subject just as much as you, which is why it is included on the CSET (California Subject Examinations for Teachers) exam. The CSET is designed to assess incoming Californian teachers in their fields of expertise, all for the sake of gauging how prepared they are to work professionally.

The CSET Home Economics exam splits up into three different parts: Subtests I through III. Each subtest has their own set of subjects and questions, all of which are relevant to the skills you’ll need to teach home economics. Subtest III features 44 questions in all, four of which are in “constructed-response” format.

The remaining 40 are multiple choice. Its subjects include Consumer Education; Housing and Consumer Design; and Fashion and Textiles. Subtest II has 42 questions—two of which are constructed-response and 40 of which are multiple choice—and deals exclusively with Nutrition, Foods, and Hospitality. Subtest I is the shortest at 41 questions (one of which is constructed-response and 40 are multiple choice). Its sole subject is Personal, Family, and Child Development.
