GACE Newsletters and Updates
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.
