The Florida Department of Education requires that all candidates who want to become teachers at Florida public schools and many private schools earn at least a bachelor’s degree and demonstrate mastery in three key areas: (1) general knowledge, (2) designated subject knowledge, and (3) professional preparation and education competence.
Teacher certification scores are provided as pass/fail. Candidates who pass a test will see a “PASS” on their score report. Applicants who do not pass will receive a numeric score. Reasons for this include that licensure and certification examinations are designed to focus on precision measurement of the minimum passing score and that numeric scores are prevented from being used inappropriately (such as determining who is eligible to be hired or receive additional training, as the tests are not designed for these purposes).
As of Friday morning, forecasts indicate that Tropical Storm Erika may impact Florida as early as Sunday, August 30. If you are currently scheduled to test on a date that may be impacted by this storm, we recommend rescheduling your test to avoid the possible dangers that this storm may create. Read more.

If your registration or exam rescheduling is not urgent, we recommend returning to the site at a later date.
