NYSTCE Communication and Quantitative Skills Test Practice Test

In addition to getting a college degree, prospective teachers who wish to teach in the New York public school system must demonstrate that they have the skills and subject mastery to ensure that students in New York receive a quality education. For this reason, the State Boar for Educator Certification (SBEC) created a series of examinations called the New York State Teacher Certification Examination (NYSTCE).


These examinations certify educators to work in New York public schools as teachers, administration, or in other educational fields. The exams are designed to assess an individual’s general and specific teaching skills and abilities and are required to become a certified teacher in New York.

Plan to be as comfortable as possible during your test. Dress in layers, bring your identification, arrive early, and use the restroom before you enter the testing area.
