GACE Test Dates

The Georgia Assessments for the Certification of Educators (GACE) tests assess the knowledge and skills of prospective teachers in Georgia public schools. Overseen by the Georgia Professional Standards Commission (GaPSC), the GACE tests come in two formats: a paper-based and computer-based.  More than one test is required for some assessments.  For this reason, the GACE takes place over a number of appointment times throughout the date of the exam. 

The rules governing which paper-based exams may be taken in one day are given on the Test Selection page of the GACE website.  For computer-based exams, navigate to a separate Computer-based Testing Test Selection Tab.

Registration for the test may be performed primarily online or by regular mail.  However, there is a short period during the emergency registration period when the administration accepts registration by phone, for an additional fee.  The following is a list of GACE test dates:

Additionally, Basic Skills and Early Childhood Education assessments are offered on May 7 and July 16.  For these exams, there is only one registration period, available by Internet only, on April 29 and July 8, respectively.

Mail-in registrations will not be accepted past the late registration deadline. 

For information on what you can bring to the test site on test day, for both paper-based and computer-based exams, see the GACE Registration Bulletin Table of Contents.

Computer-based Testing
In 2010, the Georgia Assessment for the Certification of Educators offered exams in some areas of learning (Basic Skills Tests I, II, and III) on computer.  More areas will become available in 2011; these can be checked on the GACE website.  The computer-based tests are available on a different schedule than the one above.  Additionally, questions on computer-based exams should be directed to Pearson VUE, at (800) 989-8532.

The GACE assesses test fees on a per/test basis, and can add supplemental fees.  See the chart on the Test Fees and Payment Policies section of the GACE website for details.
