What is the GACE Geography Test all about? It's a certification exam used by the state of Georgia to make sure that everyone teaching geography in a public school is competent and skilled. It consists of two parts, which must be completed in one sitting in no more than four hours.
Scores can range from 100 to 300, and the test taker must achieve a score of at least 220 to qualify for certification. Each exam has 60 multiple-choice questions (accounting for 80 percent of the score) and two constructed-response questions ( for 20 percent of the score). The first test covers the geography of Asia and Africa, while the second exam covers geography in the U.S. and on the remaining continents. The GACE Geography Test is considered by many to be one of the more difficult GACE tests.
