If you're looking for information about the GACE Latin Test, this article has all the basic facts you need to know. The Latin GACE is unusual for GACE tests because it consists of only one test, while most GACE subject tests are divided into two separate exams. The test taker has a maximum of four hours to complete the test, which is scored on a scale of 100 to 300.
In order to be certified to teach Latin in Georgia, the test taker must attain a score of 220 or higher. (There are no exceptions.) Eighty percent of the total score is determined by the multiple-choice section of the test (66 questions), while the remaining 20 percent is derived from the two written-response questions. Questions test the ability to understand written Latin, and the ability to write it, along with language rules, oral reading abilities, and cultural perspectives and connections.
