Objectives of the GACE History: Spreading Democracy Around the World Chapter

The GACE History Exam is actually two two-hour tests that can be taken on the same or different days. You must pass both to receive your teacher's license in the state of Georgia. The exam is a comprehensive evaluation of your knowledge of all areas of history from ancient times to the present. Test I, Subarea II: World History from 1450 CE to the Present is the subarea that contains questions about the spread of democracy around the world. This subarea makes up 60% of the test items on Test I. You can practice for it by taking the self-assessment quizzes that accompany the video lessons. Doing so will also give you a feel for how much you have retained, and what you still need to study.

The GACE History Exam is a computer-based-test (CBT) comprised of selected-response questions. With selected-response questions, you read passages, paragraphs and questions that are followed by several possible responses, only one of which is correct.
