Unlike many of the GACE subject matter exams, the GACE Middle Grades Mathematics Test isn't a two-part exam; there is only one test to take. It is scored on a scale of 100 to 300, and the test taker must earn at least a 220 to pass. Anyone scoring lower than 220 will not be certified to teach middle grades math in the state of Georgia.
The test is wide ranging, consisting of 60 multiple-choice questions and two written-response questions on numbers and operations, measurement and geometry, algebra, patterns and functions, probability, data analysis, and processes and perspectives in math. Eighty percent of the final score is derived from the multiple-choice section, and the remaining 20 percent from the written-response questions. Finally, all test takers should be aware that there is a time limit of four hours for the GACE Middle Grades Mathematics Test.
