I am seeking Pk-3 certification in Louisiana. The required tests are Elementary Ed Content Knowledge 5018 or Elementary Ed multiple subjects 5001 in order for me to begin a certification-only program. In order to teach with a practitioners license I must be currently enrolled in a certification program. I've settled on co-teaching Kindergarten until everything gets worked out.... I took the Elementary Ed Content Knowledge exam four times with no luck in passing. Need a 163 in Louisiana and scored a 138, 142, 148, and 132. After the fourth time I felt so discouraged that I gave up and decided to try the multiple subjects exam. I took all four subject tests at the same time and only passed the ELA 5002 with 173. SS 5004 score was 142, Math 5003 score was 140, and Science 5005 was 132 (I definitely struggled here). I decided to retake SS and scored a 172 on my second try..... Any tips for passing Math and Science? Need a 159 for science and 157 for math.... I would love to pass these tests the next time I take them.
