Academic Literacy Skills Test Prep

To receive certification to teach in New York State, all education students must now pass the Academic Literacy Skills Test (ALST). The Academic Literacy Skills Test consists of selected-response items followed by focused constructed-response items. The test also comprises an extended writing assignment based on both critical analysis and graphic representations of information in reference to a specific topic. The analysis of complex literary and/or informational text is an essential component of the ALST examination. The total testing time is 210 minutes.
Our Academic Literacy Skills Test Preparation course will examine test material and scoring objectives in relation to critical analysis of literary content, response writing techniques, and practice essays. Test-taking strategies and time-management essentials will be addressed, too. 12.5 Hours
