The CSET® has been developed for students who intend to receive the teaching certification in the State of California. The CSET® is a criterion-referenced examination. All this means is that you’ll be tested on a certain set of concepts. The concepts on your test will be pertinent to the credential you seek, and all of them have been approved by the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing. The actual test is administered by Pearson.
Depending on what you want to teach in California, you’ll have to satisfy varying requirements. For example:
If you want to teach in a general classroom, you’ll need to satisfy the Basic Skills Requirement by passing:
all three of the CSET® Multiple Subjects tests
the CSET® Writing Skills test
If your plan is to teach a certain subject, you’ll need to meet the Subject Matter Competence Requirement. To do this, you’ll need to do one of the following:
Apply for a Multiple Subject Teaching Credential and pass all three sections of the Multiple Subject test.
Apply for a Single Subject Teaching Credential (or an Education Specialist Instruction Credential, if that applies) and pass the appropriate subject area test.
