NYSTCE Test Scores & Score Reports

NYSTCE Score Report

Individuals who take New York State Teacher Certification Examinations (NYSTCE) receive a score report that lets them know whether they passed their tests or if they need to schedule a retake before they can pursue teaching careers in the state. The score report also identifies their strengths and weaknesses on each test subarea so they can focus their review or continuing education efforts on those areas.

A document containing a sample score report and information about how to interpret test scores can be accessed from each test's preparation materials page.

Scoring System

Each person who takes an NYSTCE test will receive a scaled score of between 100 and 300 on each subarea and for the test overall. A total score of 220 represents a passing score on an NYSTCE test.

NYSTCE Score Report Dates

All individuals taking NYSTCE tests receive their test scores on predetermined reporting dates. These dates follow the end of the testing window in which an individual took his or her test. The amount of time that individuals have to wait for test results can vary from two-and-a-half weeks to as many as 11 weeks, depending on whether they took their tests at the beginning, middle or end of a testing window. Scheduled 2018 testing windows and score report dates might look something like this:

Finding Score Report Dates

On the NYSTCE website, each test has its own test information page. This page contains a link to testing windows and score report dates. Individuals can review this information before scheduling their tests if they have concerns about needing their scores by specific dates.

Accessing Score Reports

In addition to getting score reports through their NYSTCE accounts, test-takers have the option of receiving an email containing their test scores. They can choose this option when they register for their exams. Scores are released after 10 p.m. EST on the applicable score reporting date. Score reports uploaded to accounts can be accessed for two years following the reporting date.

Score Report Distribution

Score reports are also sent to the New York State Education Department (NYSED). Test-takers may opt to have their college or university receive their test scores as well.
