About This Book and TestWare®

REA’s The Best Teachers’ Test Preparation for the GACE Professional Pedagogy Assessment (Test Codes 171 and 172) with TestWare® on CD-ROM is a comprehensive guide designed to assist you in preparing to take the GACE Professional Pedagogy Assessment. This test was created to assess the knowledge and skills of individuals seeking an alternative route to teacher certification.

To teach in the Georgia public schools system, prospective educators who have not completed a state-approved teacher preparation program are required to pass the GACE Professional Pedagogy Assessment (Test Codes 171 and 172) as well as the GACE Basic Skills Assessment and the appropriate GACE content area assessment. This is the testing approach to certification, as opposed to the traditional approach, which requires you to take courses through a college system, a regional educational service agency (RESA), or a university.

To help you succeed in this important step toward your teaching career in Georgia schools, this test guide, along with REA’s exclusive TestWare® software, features the following:

• An accurate and complete overview of the GACE Professional Pedagogy Assessment
• A targeted review of each subarea
• Tips and strategies for successfully passing the test
• Diagnostic tools to identify areas of strength and weakness
• Two full-length, true-to-format practice tests for each part of the Pedagogy assessment based on the most recently administered GACE Professional Pedagogy Assessment
• Detailed explanations of each answer on the practice tests

When creating this test preparation guide, we at REA considered the most recent test administrations and professional standards. We also researched information from the Georgia Department of Education, professional journals, textbooks, and educators. The result is the best GACE test preparation materials based on the latest information available.

    The Gace Professional Pedagogy Book, Good but not good enough for GACE

    I bought the Gace Professional Pedagogy Book to hopefully get me over the top on taking the remaining test for me to pass for Teacher Certification.
    I have already passed Test #172. I have taken test # 171 3 times now and my best score is 203. I need 220 to pass. I believe the material in the book is great. However, GACE is not allowing good qualified people the opportunity to change careers to get into teaching. I went back to school and received my masters degree in Education with a 3.94 overall grade point average and this is where I am at today. Three times taking the Test 171 and still not good enough to pass the GACE test!!!!!!
