If you're taking the GACE Behavioral Science Test, here's what you need to know about the exam. You have four hours to complete it; any questions not answered by the end of the test will count against you. The test is standardized and taken on a computer, as opposed to pencil and paper. The minimum passing score is 220, and scores can range from a low of 100 to a high of 300. Anyone who scores below 220 cannot be certified to teach in the state of Georgia. The test is in two parts, with each part having 40 multiple-choice questions and a brief written essay.
Part 1 of the test covers psychology, while Part 2 tests your knowledge of sociology and anthropology. There are many subcategories in each of these main categories, and GACE Behavioral Science Test takers are expected to be familiar with all of the relevant material.
