The August, 2013, GACE administration was the final opportunity to pass a GACE assessment with the former supplier, ES, to count for certification. (Exceptions were the Educational Leadership assessment that remained with the former testing supplier, ES, until spring 2014). If an examinee did not have passing scores on all tests within an assessment by the last administration of the GACE program with ES (August, 2013), the examinee had to take all tests within an assessment with the new supplier, ETS, even if a portion of the assessment was previously passed. Because scores from tests offered by different test suppliers are not comparable, examinees must have passed all parts of an assessment with the same testing supplier for that assessment to count toward certification. Passing scores on tests within an assessment cannot be split between the two suppliers. For example, an examinee could not have passed Mathematics Test 1 with ES and Mathematics Test 2 with ETS to get credit for completing the Mathematics assessment.
