SPECIAL EDUCATION 0354


This is a certification examination that is designed to determine whether or not an individual possesses the knowledge necessary to teach students with disabilities and special needs at any grade level. This exam does not assess the individual's knowledge of basic subject content related to English language arts, reading, and mathematics. Instead, this exam only assesses the individual's understanding of what it means to work with students with disabilities, methods to evaluate the individual needs of a student with a disability, and methods to teach a variety of subjects to students with special needs. This exam may be  to meet the requirements necessary to become certified as an entry-level special education teacher as long as the individual taking this exam also takes a content-related exam as well. This exam consists of 120 multiple-choice questions and cover 5 major field related areas, in the following proportions:













The exam-taker will have 2 hours to complete the exam. The use of calculators on this test is prohibited.  For the State of Maryland , 151 is the minimum passing score.


MULTIPLE CHOICE ITEMS

DO NOT LEAVE MC BLANK

For you to succeed on multiple-choice questions on any exam, you must focus carefully on the question, avoid reading into the question, pay attention to details, and shift patiently and thoroughly through the answer choices. Example, a question like ”which of the following” require you to focus only to what is given to you. Again, read each question carefully. Pay attention to key words such as not, all, except, always, or never.

● Try to anticipate the answer to the question before looking at the possible responses. If your answer is among the choices, it is likely to be correct. Before automatically choosing it, however, carefully read the alternative answers.Answer questions you are certain of first. Return to questions you are uncertain about later.  If you are unsure of the answer, eliminate obviously incorrect responses first. A problem (stem) in the form of a question or an incomplete statement. List of suggested solutions (alternatives) containing one correct or best alternative (answer) . A number of incorrect or inferior alternatives (distractors)
