Welcome to A to Z, Prof. Chaos.

(I posted about RICA: bad me.)

CSET English has changed a bit in coverage with the shift to the digital format - and the shift to Common Core standards - but my sense is that there's simply a shift in emphasis toward nonliterary texts and analysis, and perhaps more stress on savvy consumption and production of media.

There's an Excel file of linguistic terms, but apparently A to Z doesn't like Excel files. Let me see what I can do with that.

Please remember to thank elmer, all.
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!!!

Hi Elmer,
I have to take the English 5038 test. I am not in California. I live in TN. What test were these from exactly? The notes are very thorough and some seem like they would be relevant to my test but I always double check everything lol. Thank you.

5038 sounds like a Praxis test number. Experience suggests that these glossaries should work perfectly well for Praxis - one might see less of theatre in 5038 than in CSET English, but a grasp of the terminology for theatre shouldn't hurt.

Hello,

I was a BS Psychology in college, planning to go for a MA Teaching/Cred. in English. As far as my background in English goes, I had my English classes in high school and during college, took a handful of English courses. Unfortunately, I am in a panic, especially when I recently gleamed over the CSET English subtests. It has been a while, so some of the terminology and literary information is foreign to me. I already downloaded Elmer's resources (so thankful); I am also wondering what books to buy off Amazon. I am planning to take the test in 2 months, so there is not much time. I definitely need to pass!

Any advice on what to do? I would be so thankful.

CSET English comprises 100 multiple choice questions, four of what Pearson calls "focused" responses (150-300 words), and two of the longest "extended" responses in all of CSET (or teacher testing, for that matter); if one takes the thing in one go, the test appointment is five hours, though most takers split the subtests up in order to get more time. The focused responses in Subtest IV cover ground that most other states' English tests don't because those states don't lump speech/communications, journalism, and theatre arts in under the English credential/license. If you prep as though you're taking CSET English (wave at Subtest IV), you should be nicely overprepared, and with luck you'll have knocked the rust off your high-school and college English course while exploring ways in which your BS in psychology can be leveraged for teaching and learning English.

For now, breathe, please.
