I'm glad to have C4 behind me, now to quickly change gears for C1 on 6/11. Then I will truly be done!

Look in you cert area's C1 guide.

The CR and SR are quite different depending on your cert area.

For my CR's, I got two 2.75's and one 2.875. I really wish I would've practiced using my C1 guide more. it gives rubrics saying exactly what they'll be scoring...probably the clearest rubrics in the whole process, actually.

And I share your sentiments about C4. It was really hard to figure out for me!

Thank you! I'm CTE and I'm getting hung up on what to prepare for because there are 8 strands within the CTE certification. My strand is completely different from the others. The C1 guide doesn't make it seem like we have different exams for each different strand, so I'm trying to think higher level concepts . . . then my brain goes

Thank you! It helps to know that the rubrics were spot on. I'll go back and re-read them.

C4 was definitely a struggle with some medical issues that popped up and interfered, but I made it through! I'm in a good place with my scores from C2 (3.25) and C3 (4.0) last year, so I just need to "pass" C4 and C1. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for December. I just want to be done

I have weird advice. I am solidly a Mac person and I learned my test center uses those big clunky Dell keyboards. I borrowed one and practiced typing on that for a few months, to re-train the muscle memory. The CR exercises are timed and, while you aren't scored on mechanics, fast, accurate typing matters.

Great advice. The computers for C1 at my facility were big, bulky desktop pcs with an actual clicker mouse. I soon realized that the number keypad on the far left actually works on the keyboard so I didn't have to use the top row numbers. I was able to type a bit quicker because of this. My area is math so numbers are used frequently on the C1.

I believe this is the norm.

CTE CR brain fog

I'm CTE also and teach the same subject all blocks. I'm fine with studying multiple areas for multiple choice testing (comparable to the Praxis), but I'm really struggling with what to include and how to even write for the CRs. I'm not in a cohort so I'm flying solo and get really nauseous every time someone asks me when my test is. I did C2 and C3 last year, C4 this year and have my test scheduled for 6/4. Any suggestions about how to begin and what to include will be GREATLY appreciated!
