Component 1: Content Knowledge is a computer-based assessment that asks you to demonstrate knowledge of and pedagogical practices for teaching your content area. You must demonstrate knowledge of developmentally appropriate content, which is necessary for teaching across the full age range and ability level of your chosen certificate area. This is assessed through the completion of three constructed response exercises and approximately 45 selected response items.
This document provides the names and descriptions of the three constructed response exercises and the content covered in the selected response items for each certificate area.

Note: This Component At-a-Glance provides an informational overview of the assessment center process while the assessment development is being finalized. The final documentation will be posted online at www.boardcertifiedteachers.orgg . Candidates will be notified via email when the documentation is posted in late fall 2014. All information is subject to change.
