The GACE Mathematics Test is in fact two different tests, which must be taken back to back on the same test date. Each exam comprises 60 multiple-choice questions, which make up 80 percent of the total test score, along with two questions requiring a constructed response, which count for 20 percent of the total score. The exam is also timed, and no test taker may take longer than four hours to finish. Any questions not completed by then will be left blank. The first part of the GACE Mathematics Test covers number concepts, algebra, pre-calculus, and calculus. The second exam is on mathematical processes and perspectives, data analysis, probability, measurement, and geometry. Scores can range from 100 to 300, but the lowest passing score is 220. Anyone scoring less than that cannot be certified to teach mathematics in Georgia.
