Before you determine which tests to take, you will need to obtain your transcript(s) and use our Transcript Analysis Forms to choose the grade level and content area that you are qualified to teach. All candidates are required to take and pass all four sub tests of the Test of Academic Proficiency (Reading, Language Arts, Mathematics, and Writing), as well as a content area test, before the start of the program in late June 2017.
