CSET FAQs

1. What is the difference between CSET Multiple Subject and CSET Single Subject?

The CSET Multiple Subject test is required to teach K-6 in the public school system in California, whereas the Single Subject exams are typically required to teach one or more subjects to grades 7-12. The CSET Multiple Subject Test covers a wide breadth of knowledge of several academic subjects, while the Single Subject tests require a deeper knowledge of a single subject. Many education credential programs in the Los Angeles area, including USC and Mount Saint Mary’s, require students to pass the CSET along with meeting core course requirements.

2. How many sections are there?

The CSET is divided into three subtests, which may be taken in the same sitting or separately:

Section Subject # of Questions
Subtest 1 Reading, Language, and Literature 26 multiple-choice questions; 2 constructed response
History and Social Science 26 multiple-choice questions; 2 constructed response
Subtest 2 Science 26 multiple-choice questions; 2 constructed response
Mathematics 26 multiple-choice questions; 2 constructed response
Subtest 3 Physical Education 13 multiple-choice questions; 1 constructed response
Human Development 13 multiple-choice questions; 1 constructed response
Visual and Performing Arts 13 multiple-choice questions; 1 constructed response

3. Where do I take the test?

The test is taken at a computer test center, including several options in Los Angeles (the same locations where students take the CBEST). You can search for a test center location near you here.

4. How many do I need to get correct to pass?

A scaled score of 220 is passing. The multiple-choice section makes up 70% of each score, while the constructed response is 30%. Test-makers don’t release exact information about how this translates into the percentage of questions correct, but a good estimate is that you need at least a 70% average on the multiple-choice and constructed response questions.

5. When do I get my scores back?

Official scores are released 20-45 days after the test.

5. Where can I find practice tests?

The official CSET website offers free sample questions and one practice test for each subtest. The CliffsNotes book also has two decent practice tests.
