Test information guides are available for every test in the FTCE/FELE program. They include a description of the test, a list of competencies and skills tested, sample test items, and a reference sheet, if applicable.
The guides are intended to provide an overview of the content and format of the examination and are updated as needed to reflect the current test content and standards. They are not intended as all-inclusive sources of content or pedagogical knowledge, nor are they substitutes for college coursework, educator preparation instruction, or experiential knowledge. Per the Standards for Educational and Psychological Testing, "Test takers should be provided in advance with as much information about the test, the testing process, the intended test use, test scoring criteria, [and] testing policy... as is consistent with obtaining valid responses and making appropriate interpretations of test scores" (AERA, APA, NCME, 2014, p. 134).
IMPORTANT: The Florida Department of Education does not endorse any third-party FTCE/FELE test preparation materials and cannot attest to the quality or accuracy of such materials. The Test Information Guides (below) and other resources available on this website are the only materials the Department recommends.
