So you're wife is a good guesser?

I've always attributed my scores to how well I knew the material. Silly me.

I'm thinking he meant multiple choice by multiple guess.

I'm sure the test is multiple choice. Calling it multiple guess undermines the validity and seriousness of teacher licensure exams with which he seems to have issues.

Sounds to me he meant multiple choice, in all honestly after taking the Rica and Multiple Subject CSET. I had my shares of multiple guesses.

Making an intelligent guess is a test taking strategy. I'm reacting to the poster's repeated posts which excoriate teacher licensing exams and state certification requirements.

lol. It is funny. When I was taking all these test, I would say "this does not make you a good teacher." After teaching for five years now, I was wrong, you have to learn the concepts to be able to teach it. Hang in there these test do help you! Plus having great classroom management skills helps your sanity too.

Passed it!

Just stopped by to say I passed with a 567. 296 reading and 271 in writing. I am very happy with my score considering the fact that I only had about 20 minutes to write the summary AND the essay and I turned them both in without proofreading. I didn't even stress this much years ago when I took the Praxis.
