The California Basic Educational Skills Test (CBEST) is a standardized test required by the states of California and Oregon for individuals seeking their first teaching or services credential. It was developed by the Commission of Teacher Credentialing (CTC) to meet the California Education Code (Section 44254), which was amended by the legislature of California on February 1, 1983. This amendment “requires teachers, administrators, and other school practitioners, demonstrate adequate proficiency, in English, of three basic skills: reading, mathematics, and writing.” The CBEST is administered by the National Evaluation Systems, Inc. (NES), under the direction of the CBEST Program. It does not test an individual’s teaching skills or abilities; it only test reading skills (critical analysis, evaluation, comprehension, and research skills), mathematics skills (estimation, measurement, computation, and problem solving, etc.), and writing skills that are considered important for a job in the education field, either at the elementary, secondary, or higher education levels.
The CBEST format was implemented by the Oregon Teachers Standards and Practices Commission (TSPC) in July 1984 to assess the basic skills of individuals entering the education field. Six months after, it became a requirement for obtaining a license in Oregon as an educator. The CBEST is an additional requirement for obtaining a license or credential, and it does not replace the other requirements established for the issuance of teaching credentials.
The CBEST consists of three sections: reading, mathematics and writing. It contains multiple-choice questions and two essay questions. Each multiple-choice question presents five choices (A through E) and examinees are given four hours to take the test. The time given can be divided among the three sections in any way desired.
