If you're taking the GACE School Psychology Test, here is a brief overview that provides all the basic information you need to prepare for the exam. (In case you are not aware, failure to pass the test means the applicant will be denied certification.) The test is actually a two-part exam, but both are taken on the same day, with no more than four hours allotted for completion. Topics on the first part include learning, development, diversity, student assessment, and data-based decision making. There are 60 multiple-choice questions and two written-response questions. The same format holds true for the second part of the test, and topics include the professional context of school psychology practice, and prevention, intervention, collaboration, and program evaluation. The minimum passing score is 220 on a scale of 100 to 300.
