NYSTCE English to Speakers of Other Languages Practice Test
In order to become certified by the New York State Board of Education to teach English to Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL), prospective teachers will need to take the NYSTCE English to Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) Exam. This is one of many exams created by the New York State Board of Education as part of the New York State Teacher Certification series (NYSTCE).
The NYSTCE exams cover every subject area as well as supervisory and counseling certifications. The NYSTCE exams must be taken at a testing facility that is proctored by the Educational Testing Service. These exams test the general and specific skills of prospective teachers so that they can teach students within the state of New York.
These examinations ensure that New York teachers have the necessary knowledge and skills to be entry-level educators in the New York public schools. You’ll need to register for your test and schedule to take it on a day when you can allow plenty of time. You will have 3 hours and 15 minutes to complete this test and you won’t want to feel rushed. Be sure to read the rules for the testing facility before you arrive.
You won’t be allowed to take anything into the testing facility with you, including your notes. Dress in layers so that you can be comfortable in the testing facility regardless of the temperature. You will want to arrive at least 15 minutes before your test so that you can start it on time. If you arrive too late, the testing proctor may not allow you to take your test and you’ll have to reschedule it.
