    Hi,
    The subfinder test is conducted by Utah State Uty and it is an online test. I took it once and got 74%. I scored extremely well in areas such as professionalism and filler activities etc but didn't do so welll in classroom management.:( What is a good score anyway? I have to take the scores to one of districts here to apply for a sub position? :confused:

    I am trying to have my own bag of tricks while I sub. anyone who took the test, help me with your ideas. :help:

    Thanks,
    Emma

    Emma, what is the url of the test? It would be interesting to see what I score. We use a subfinder system to get jobs, but I have never been required to take a test and then take the scores to a district. Interesting.

    I made a 77% the first time..I need to improve in SpEd/Legal. I'll take it again later. Give my mind a chance to forget my answers.

    I just finished taking it and scored 70%. I scored the highest in legal/education and professional. It kind of diappointed me because I thought I would be higher.

    Well, I just took it and scored 79%... some of those questions were *really* odd-- I could see several that had awfully ambiguous answers.

    They should have a list of the ones that you got wrong and the answers that they think are correct. Any of the answers that I picked, I would feel comfortable defending. I think that there are several that could go either way and are really more of a judgement call than a correct answer.

    I thought the same thing! I was happy with every answer I gave, and have done some of the same things in the classroom...and its worked!

    I am very curious to know which ones I got "wrong", and what the correct response would be.
