GKT and TEAS Test Prep

TEAS and GKT Test Prep Services

The Academic Support Center and Writing Center have developed a variety of support options to help prospective Education and Nursing students achieve their academic potential by helping them to prepare both mentally and academically for the rigors of a standardized testing situation, the ATI TEAS and the GKT.

 

ATI TEAS

  • TEAS is an acronym for the Test of Essential Academic Skills. ATI is the name of the test maker, Academic Technologies Institute.
  • Programs in the health science field, such as nursing and radiography, require TEAS test scores for admission into their programs.
  • The TEAS tests students in four main content areas: Reading, English and Language Usage, Mathematics, and Science.

 

TEAS Reviews:  These reviews are offered twice weekly, Wednesdays at 10 AM and Thursdays at 3 PM, on a walk-in basis in the Bldg. 500 ASC (Daytona campus).  Students should come with review materials and specific questions.  Assistance is offered in all areas of the TEAS.

 

TEAS Test Preparation Workshops:  Content specific workshops in Reading, English and language usage, Mathematics, and Science are offered 3-4 times yearly to coincide with deadlines for the nursing and radiography programs.  Each 90-minute workshop is created and facilitated by content-area experts from the DSC Academic Support Center and Writing Center.  Students must register in advance, as there is a high demand for these workshops, and they reach capacity quickly. Schedule and registration for upcoming workshops

 

TEAS Reading and English Assistance:  The Writing Center offers 1-on-1, 45-minute appointments for students seeking help with TEAS prep. Students may schedule up to three appointments each week. Students’ individual strengths and weaknesses are examined and a study plan is devised. Since sessions are tailored to the individual needs of the learner, they may cover multiple content areas in one session.

 

TEAS Math and Science Assistance: Learning Specialists and peer tutors in the Academic Support Center are available to assist students with specific questions on a walk-in basis.

 

TEAS Test Prep Materials:  The Academic Support Center and Writing Center on each campus have TEAS test prep books available for student check out and use in the lab.

 


FTCE GKT

  • The Florida Teacher Certification Examination (FTCE) General Knowledge Test (GKT) is a required element for teachers who wish to obtain a Florida Teaching Certificate. Many bachelor’s level education programs have made the GKT an entrance requirement.
  • This test is composed of four subtests: Essay, English Language Skills, Mathematics and Reading.

GKT Test Preparation Workshops:  These content specific workshops are offered 6-8 times yearly preceding program deadlines for the Bachelor of Science in Education. Each 90-minute workshop is designed and facilitated by content-area experts from the Academic Support Center and Writing Center.  Students must register in advance, as there is a high demand for these workshops, and they reach capacity quickly. Schedule and registration for upcoming workshops

 

GKT Reading and English Language Skills: The Writing Center offers 1-on-1, 45-minute appointments for students seeking help with GKT prep. Students may schedule up to three appointments each week. Students’ individual strengths and weaknesses are examined and a study plan is devised. Since sessions are tailored to the individual needs of the learner, they may cover multiple content areas in one session.

 

GKT Essay: Students may complete a practice essay session by scheduling an appointment with the ASC or the Writing Center. Students will be given a sample prompt in a test-like environment. Following their timed writing session, they can schedule a follow-up appointment with the Writing Center to discuss their essay.

 

GKT Math: Learning Specialists and peer tutors in the Academic Support Center are available to assist students with specific questions on a walk-in basis.

 

GKT Test Prep Materials:  The Academic Support Center and Writing Center on each campus have GKT test prep books available for student check out and use in the lab.
