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 computer-based form only. 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.

Registration for the test is performed primarily online. There are some exceptions allowing mail-in registration, but you must meet certain requirements. You can find those by navigating to the Bulletin Supplement for Test Takers with Disabilities or Health-Related Needs. You are encouraged to register online as early as possible.

GACE assesments are available to take several times per year. These days are referred to as "testing windows." Here are the latest Testing Windows for 2015.
