Test of Essential Academic Skills (TEAS)

The Test of Essential Academic Skills (TEAS) is a scholastic aptitude assessment that can be used as one component of the selection process for admitting students into post-secondary education programs. Screening qualified candidates for college admission is crucial for best matching of available resources to individuals with a minimum level of ability relevant to program study requirements. The goal is to predict those candidates with the highest likelihood of academic success in a future area of study.

The MATH subtest covers whole numbers, metric conversion, fractions and decimals, algebraic equations, percentages, and ratio/proportion.

READING covers paragraph comprehension, passage comprehension, and inferences/conclusions.

The ENGLISH subtest measures knowledge of punctuation, grammar, sentence structure, contextual words, and spelling.

The SCIENCE portion of the exam covers science reasoning, science knowledge, biology, chemistry, anatomy and physiology, basic physical principles, and general science.

For more information regarding the TEAS Testing and for Study Guide information, please visit the ATI homepage.

**TEAS test may only be taken twice without remediation.  The second attempt may be taken two weeks after the first and only the sections that were failed need to be retaken. If the required score is not achieved, the student must confer with Advising & Counseling for appropriate remediation.**

The test fee for CCRI nursing applicants is $50 which is due at the time of the appointment. The test fee for students testing for other schools/nursing programs is $80. Please make checks/money orders payable to CCRI.

Testing is by appointment only on each campus.  Please contact the campus of your choice to schedule an appointment.
