The GACE Computer Skill Competency Test is a bit out of the ordinary when it comes to GACE subject tests. Most of them consist of two exams, but Computer Skill Competency is only one exam. At first glance, it doesn't sound very difficult, as the test comprises only 60 multiple-choice questions (most GACE tests also require writing one or more essays) and the time allotted to complete the test is four hours, a seemingly generous time frame.
However, test takers should not be deceived. The test is quite difficult, and many people fail it. In large part, that's because the test covers so much territory-everything from understanding and using hardware, software, and peripheral devices to knowing how to design and implement technology programs in the classroom, and everything in between. That's a lot to know, and the minimum passing score is 220, so no one should take the test for granted.
