Physics (Subtest III) -test code123
General Science (Subtests I&II) -test codes 118, 119
 Math (Subtests I,II & III) -test codes 211, 212, 213

Offered by the

Michael D. Eisner College of Education

California State University Northridge


in collaboration with

The CSU Office of the Chancellor Mathematics and Science Teaching Initiative

 

 Sessions cover Intensive Content Review and Test-Taking Strategies.


  • Subtest I (test code 215)
  • Subtest II (test codes 217-220)
    • Life Sciences (test code 217)
    • Chemistry (test code 218)
    • Earth and Space Sciences (test code 219)
    • Physics (test code 220) 

Subtest I covers general science content while Subtest II covers the candidate's area of concentration. A credential in this subject matter area authorizes teaching general and integrated science and the area of concentration. Science: Biological Sciences is the credential area for Life Sciences, and Science: Geosciences is the credential area for Earth and Space Sciences. You may register to take any one subtest or Subtests I and II in a single test session.


BENEFITS

  • Free 40-hour CSET Test Preparation Workshops
  • You may be eligible for a stipend of up to $750 once you are admitted to the program.
  • You may be eligible for a stipend of up to $1000 upon issuance of a physics, science or math credential* 
  • Free parking for the CSET Workshops (Get passes at workshop or MSTI office)
  • Free test preparation books to prepare you for the CSET exams.
*Eligibility for stipend is based upon availability of funding, with priority given to students who have attended all sessions and earned their science credential at CSUN.

CSET PREPARATION WORKSHOPS ARE DESIGNED FOR:

 

  • Prospective Teachers intending to apply to a credential program in Science  (Science subtests I&II) or  Math (Math subtests I&II).
  • Teachers seeking an added authorization. Teachers with a Multiple Subject or Single Subject credential, who are seeking an added authorization. (Science subtests I&II);  Math (Math subtests I&II); Physics (subtest III)
    • To add authorization to teach general science or math, you need to
    • Demonstrate content area subject-matter competence (CSET)
    • Complete a three-semester-unit or four-quarter-unit course in methodology directly related to teaching in a departmentalized setting in the specific content area sought. (SED 525S-Science, or SED525M-Math)
