    Most of the points come from the MC, if you did well enough on it you'll pass.

    I started off with an opening sentence and then answered each part with a bullet. The ETS practice test is good for studying.

    I have been practicing the CR from the ETS site and other study guides but concerned about stating enough content. Any suggestions or does anyone know how much the CR weigh on the final score?

    70% multiple choice, 30% CR

    Thanks! I am fairly comfortable with the MC as long as I think globally and not specifically about my district, but I am starting to stress the CR

    You only need 160. I'll give you the advice I was given: focus most of your efforts on the MC. For the CR, use bullet points , don't write entire paragraphs, get right to the point.

    TN has the lowest score requirement, so I wouldn't fret. Just answer the questions as if you were an administrator.

    Thank you - appreciate any help. I finished my school work and got caught in a gap year where TN wouldn't accept out of state programs so am now taking the exam years later when I received confirmation that I can now submit the score for my license - so trying to refresh my knowledge when answering the CR's

    Fourthekids, on the constructed responses let me recommend responding as an administrator addressing another administrator who means you well but knows you're new and just wants to be assured that you do know what you're doing. Use the technical terminology that's appropriate, but don't sweat over the grammar.

    Well sitting here thinking I didn't pass...... I didn't complete all of the CR. Time ran out in the middle of one and still had one left. I definitely made the mistake of spending too much time on the first CR which everyone warned me not to do. Bummed out but guess I can take it again.

    Hugs to you, Fourthekids. If 6011 is structured the way most such tests are, constructed responses count for about 30% of the total test score: a strong performance on multiple choice by itself can be enough to pass.

    If it's any consolation, many people who leave a test like this thinking they haven't passed find out that they did.

    Thanks - I took it at the beginning of the testing window so can't worry about it now....will just try and focus on the end of the school year and can re-take later in the summer.

    I received the email on Saturday saying scores were posted, I was afraid to check and then got busy with end of the school year stuff. I bit the bullet and checked this morning - I PASSED with a 170. What a relief :)
    Have you received your scores?

    You quoted your own post. Which poster are you referring to?

    Taking the rest in July. On the practice test, I took it cold and missed 11 on the multiple choice. When I looked over it, I understood why they picked the answer they did. Any suggestions on specific content to study for written questions?
