    They do give you a score, but they do not say whether it is or is not a high score.
    If you go online, then you can find comparison charts with Adult Education Exams, and you can utilize those to determine whether your score is or is not high. For example, I scored a 250 out of 300 on the mathematics test, and that is a very high score.

    I am talking about the typical sheet given to anybody (I 've taken many and got the pass sheet)..it clearly says pass..all these analytics you are discussing is something you are doing on your own...very good. Very smart of you.

    Check this out: http://spot.pcc.edu/~shenness/standards/GradeLevelRefs.pdf
    According to the statistics shown there, a score of higher than 245 demonstrates college lever or higher skills. I found this on line. Thank you!

    I need help passing the math section of General Knowledge and can't return to my job until I pass. This really sucks because I'm not that bad in math, but this GK Math is snatching my confidence and my money. (taken it 4 times already) Please someone help! Jett4400@gmail.com

    My recommendation is that you find a good SAT instruction book. You're going to have to start utilizing reasoning skills. You have another month before trying again, so start drilling yourself every day by working from 5 to 10 problems daily, and do not make up excuses for not doing. Furthermore, do not look at the answers until you worked on a problem for at least 15 minutes. Sometimes, it's good to walk away, relax, think about it, and then come back to it. Also, google search is awesome. There are a lot of truly smart people who demonstrate the best way to solve problems. In addition, utilize youtube. Finally, I'm assuming you bought the book from the DOE. If not, do it! You can pass that test, but it's going to take work!

    Hi Chaz, I suppose I should have joined earlier in this forum but if you need some help let me know. I'm in the middle of my review for the math 6-12 SAE so I might as well practice while helping someone. I'm not teaching right now because I just passed my GK exams right after the school has started and was having a hard time getting a new teaching job which I suspect is from a bad reference which is another story from a thread. Anyways, if you're interested let me know.

    It takes about 14 days to get the score. You have to log into your Casa Core account to see it. I took all three tests at the same time. The trivium.
    I passed the mathematics and reading right off the bat, but I had to retake the writing test.
    I passed the writing test on the second attempt.

    I'm done with the Casa Core Exams. Now I need to get past that nearly impossible to pass Indiana Science Certification Test.

    I'm still trying to figure out why the State of Indiana charges $112 dollars for those tests. THAT IS OUTRAGEOUS!

    Okay! I have nothing to hide now!
    I did take, pass, and receive a score for the casa exams!
    I hate it when people think I'm not a veracious person. I do care about all of you who want to become a teacher, but, at the same time, I was informed that I am not allowed to disclose anything about any of the tests because I could be sued. I do not wish to be sued.
    Okay, check me out on google. I posted my scores there. Here is the proof: https://plus.google.com/u/0/110964446969321149920
