Academic Literacy Skills Test Preparation

To receive certification to teach in New York State, all education students must now pass the Academic Literacy Skills Test (ALST). This test consists of selected-response items followed by focused constructed-response items. The test also includes an extended writing assignment based on both critical analysis and graphic representations of information in reference to a specific topic. Analysis of complex literary and/or informational text is an essential component of the ALST examination.

Our Academic Literacy Skills Test Prep examines 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 are addressed. The total testing time is 210 minutes. This course is 20 hours.
