About this Assessment
The GACE Marketing Education assessment is designed to measure the professional
knowledge of prospective teachers of secondary school Marketing Education in the
state of Georgia.
This assessment includes two tests. You may take either test individually or the full
assessment in a single session. The testing time is the amount of time you will have to
answer the questions on the test. Test duration includes time for tutorials and directional
screens that may be included in the test.
The questions in this assessment assess both basic knowledge across content areas
and the ability to apply principles.
The total number of questions that are scored is typically smaller than the total number
of questions on the test. Most tests that contain selected-response questions also
include embedded pretest questions, which are not used in calculating your score. By
including pretest questions in the assessment, ETS is able to analyze actual test-taker
performance on proposed new questions and determine whether they should be
included in future versions of the test.
Content Specifications
Each test in this assessment is organized into content subareas. Each subarea is
further defined by a set of objectives and their knowledge statements.
The objectives broadly define what an entry-level educator in this field in Georgia
public schools should know and be able to do.
The knowledge statements describe in greater detail the knowledge and skills
eligible for testing.
Some tests also include content material at the evidence level. This content
serves as descriptors of what each knowledge statement encompasses.
See a breakdown of the subareas and objectives for the tests in this assessment on the
following pages.
