About This Test
The Fundamental Subjects: Content Knowledge examination assesses candidates' skills and understanding broadly across four subjects:
- English Language Arts
- Citizenship and Social Science
Questions are arranged in the test book by subject. An index on the back page of the test book identifies the page locations where each subject can be found. Candidates may answer the questions in any order they choose.
The content of the examination is not predicated on the assumption that the candidates should be experts in all of the subjects. Since the examination's purpose is to assess knowledge and skills in subject matter that may lie outside an individual candidate's teaching specialization, the questions in each subject focus on key indicators of general knowledge and understanding, requiring examinees to utilize fundamental skills that are founded upon broad concepts in each of the subjects.
This test may contain some questions that will not count toward your score.
