New Testing Requirements for Teacher Education
The New York State Education Department (NYSED) has implemented legislation (NYSED Transformation Act of 2015) that requires schools of education such as the Thelma P. Lally 教育学院 at 冰球突破豪华版app to adopt rigorous selection criteria in admission of its graduate students. These selection criteria must include scores on the 研究生 Record Examination (GRE考试) or other 米勒类比测验 (MAT).
In compliance with this new regulation, 冰球突破豪华版app must require GRE考试 成绩或 MAT scores from all applicants to graduate-level studies in teacher education and educational leadership programs beginning with the spring 2017 semester.

- Childhood Education (Grades 1 – 6)
- Childhood/特殊教育 (Grades 1 – 6)
- 课程 & 指令
- Early Childhood Education (Birth – Grade 2)
Applicants seeking admission to graduate study in the programs listed above must submit GRE考试普通考试 成绩或 米勒类比测验 scores with their application materials. 课程申请人 & 指令, 读写能力 or 特殊教育 may submit edTPA scores in lieu of GRE考试 or MAT scores.
冰球突破豪华版app faculty will continue to review applications holistically and test scores will be only one factor to be considered. Test scores will not carry more weight that other elements of the application. There are no minimum score requirements at this time. Deciding which exam to take depends on your skills, your schedule, and your study habits. 根据 Magoosh网站, taking the “MAT or GRE考试 sounds like a simple question, but there are many factors to consider.”
Magoosh.com recommends that you take a practice test of each, MAT和GRE考试, to see which test reveals your strongest skills. The MAT only takes an hour but it includes questions from a wide range of subject areas and tests your analogic reasoning. The GRE考试 is a much longer exam and is narrower in scope and focuses on mathematics and vocabulary. For a small investment of time and cost you can find out which exam suits you better. Once you determine which exam is right for you, you can invest more time and money for test-prep classes so you preform your very best on the actual exam.
