The Program for Licensing Assessments for Colorado Educators (PLACE) is a teacher licensing exam for any teaching candidate in the state of Colorado. Because teachers have the power to impact the next generation, the purpose of the PLACE is to make sure that all certified and licensed educators in Colorado meet a certain standard for teaching skills and knowledge.
The PLACE is not a single test; it is actually many tests covering the breadth of educator careers within the Colorado education system. Depending on your area of education, you may be required to take one or more PLACE tests. Examples of these tests include: Administrator, Language tests (French, German, etc.), Gifted and Talented, and so on.
Most PLACE tests include only multiple-choice questions, but the tests for languages other than English usually consist of written and oral performance assignments in addition to the multiple-choice questions. If you are going to take the Special Education Specialist: Visually Impaired test, you should also be prepared for a Braille performance component.
The PLACE Basic Skills test is not required for licensing or certification, but many colleges or universities recommend it nonetheless. The Basic Skills test includes sections in reading, mathematics, and writing. The Basic Skills test is mostly multiple-choice, except for the writing sample.
You can register for the PLACE tests by mail, internet, or phone. Once you have registered, you will be assigned to either one or both test sessions, depending on the number and type of tests for which you register.
You should begin preparing for the PLACE tests at least a few months in advance of your scheduled test date. A PLACE study guide is a great place to start. The PLACE study guide offers test-taking strategies, sample test questions, and test objectives.
