The California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC) is pleased to announce the availability of online proctoring for the CBEST and select CSET exams. Online proctoring allows you to take your test securely from your home, school, or business. With just a simple check-in process—involving ID verification, face-matching technology, and a live greeter—you can test without having to travel to a test center.

Available for:

    • CSET: English (Subtests I–IV)
    • CSET: Multiple Subjects (Subtest I and Subtest III)
    • CBEST (all three sections)
    • CSET: Social Science (Subtests I–III)

Please see the California Educator Credentialing Assessments website for additional information.

When I was looking for a Teacher Education Program, I was looking for a program whose values aligned with mine.

I don’t see teaching as a job. I see teaching as part of who I am and as a way to enact change in this world.”
