NYSTCE Elementary Assessment of Teaching Skills-Written Practice Test
The New York State Board of Education created the NYSTCE Elementary Assessment of Teaching Skills-Written Exam for potential teachers who received a failing score on the edTPA and who will be using a passing score on the ATS–W in lieu of a passing score on the edTPA under the edTPA safety net. Note that this exam is not acceptable for any other New York State Teacher Certification.
This examination was created so that New York State educators have the knowledge and skill level necessary to teach the approved curriculum in New York State Public Schools. Teachers should be able to teach all children including those who have special needs and those for whom English is not their primary language.
Teachers will recognize the role of family and community and will forge home-school partnerships to facilitate student learning. The NYSTCE series of teacher certification examinations use a computer-based testing format which can only be administered at an official testing site. This examination is comprised of one constructed-response question on Instruction and Assessment.
It also includes 80 selected-response questions which will cover Student Development and Learning, Instruction and Assessment, and the Professional Environment. The testing format allows up to 4 hours to complete all areas of the test.
