Part of it, Peachy, is that I'm fairly good at Google and well acquainted with Answers.com; part is having an oddly wide-ranging liberal arts education plus time in an academic graduate program; part is confidence in my ability to construct an answer that makes sense when I know the principles that underlie it; part is that rummaging around teacher tests tends to leave one with a permanent residue of remarkable little factlets; and part is that "teacher groupie" is not merely a username but a descriptor.

And you're welcome.


I'm not entirely sure I understand what you're saying. So I should just wait until I have completed the 3rd subtest to apply for the physics credential because the general science authorization will be included as well? I don't plan to do anything with a foundational-science credential anytime soon so I'm trying to save myself money by only applying once.

I just wanted to comment here because I found this thread when I was googling around for information about CSET score releases and I figured others might end up in the same boat. My CSET scores (multiple subject) were released on the website at EXACTLY the time they said they would be in the email, which in my case was 10pm. I didn't receive them through any other method.

Sorry I missed this earlier, joeschmoe. For you, the answer is yes: you can apply for the regular Science credential with the physics specialization and the general-science endorsement as a one-shot deal on the strength of having passed Subtests I and II, once you've also passed Subtest III in physics.

I generally recommend springing for the general-science authorization separately in the case of someone who needs the authorization to student teach or to get admitted to a credential program - but it seems that neither of those cases pertains to you, and that's fine.

Yeah they changed it. My score used to come via e-mail at 10AM in the morning the day the scores are released. Then they would send a hard copy out the same week. I called the CSET and they said from now on, there will be no hard copies sent out. You need to download the PDF file and store it in a safe place!

Thanks TeacherGroupie. I'm gonna take the physics test in January and hopefully pass. I'll then apply straight for the physics credential then.
