NYSTCE Academic Literacy Skills Test (ALST) Practice Test
Prospective teachers who want to teach in the state of New York are required to take the NYSTCE series of examinations that were created by the State Board for Educator Certification (SBEC), which are administered by the Educational Testing Service (ETS). As of March 17, 2017, teachers are no longer required to take the Academic Literacy Skills Test Exam to become certified.
Teachers who already took the test will be scored. The NYSTCE Academic Literacy Skills Test Practice Test and NYSTCE Academic Literacy Skills Test Study Guide will help prepare you for this basic exam. The exam consists of 40 selected-response questions, 2 focused-response questions, and 1 extended-response question.
Mometrix has designed a study guide that gives you practice with the types of questions you can expect to see on your test. You will have 3 ½ hours to take the exam at an official testing site. A score of 520 is considered a passing score. You may retake the test as many times as you need to for your certification. This examination is designed to determine whether prospective teachers have the necessary knowledge to be an entry-level educator in the New York public school system.
The framework of the test consists of 40 selected-response questions in the competency of Reading and 2 focused-response questions and one extended-response question in the competency of Writing to Sources. Please arrive to the testing center at least 15 minutes prior to your scheduled time.
If you arrive more than 15 minutes late, you may not be able to take your test. Dress in layers on your test date so that you are comfortable regardless of the temperature in the testing center. You may not bring anyone with you to the testing facility. No materials, cell phones, or calculators are allowed in the testing area. The computer-based test provides everything that you need.
