The GACE® Assessments
The state of Georgia requires candidates for educator certification to take the Georgia Assessments for the Certification of Educators® (GACE®) as part of the educator certification process. These computer-delivered assessments have been developed by the Georgia Professional Standards Commission (GaPSC) and Educational Testing Service (ETS).
The purpose of the GACE assessments is to assure that the knowledge and skills acquired by prospective Georgia educators are aligned with state and national standards for educator preparation and with state standards for the P–12 student curriculum — the Common Core Georgia Performance Standards (CCGPS).
How Do I Register to Take a GACE Assessment?
GACE assessments are given as computer-delivered tests at test centers throughout Georgia and many other locations. Once you have confirmed your eligibility and testing requirements, you can register online or by phone. See Registration, Test Centers, and Dates.
How Can I Prepare for a Test?
You can review the Study Companions, Test Familiarization Videos, Interactive Practice Tests, and other test prep materials to help get ready for the test. See Test Preparation Resources.
