The Teacher Education Writing Examination

Taking and passing the Teacher Education Writing Exam is required for admission to the Teacher Education Program at Utah State University. The exam is given during the first five weeks of Fall and Spring Semesters (Summer Semesters may vary.) It is administered in the YETC (see address and phone information for the YETC at the top of this page) and at selected extension sites throughout Utah. Students may attempt writing exam only ONCE per semester.

You can take the writing examination during YETC business hours. You do not need to make an appointment. You have one hour to take the examination, so be sure to arrive at the YETC at least an hour and a half before closing. You will need to present a picture identification, such as your activity card or driver's license.

The next opportunity to take the writing examination will occur August 25, 2014 - September 27, 2014.

For more information, please see the writing examination guidelines.

Some Great, Free Resources for Our Students!

The YETC spent time to gather free resources from the internet - things you can freely download on your own if you wanted to take time to hunt them all down. However, we've done most of the work for you! We have collected free software for Windows and Macintosh PCs, classic books in PDF format, music teacher resources, children's stories, audiobooks, educational podcasts, NASA educational resources and videos, free fonts, desktop wallpapers, and a collection of educationa videos just for Utah educators!

How can you access these? Come to the YETC. You'll need your USU activity card. You may then copy the files you want from our hard drives to your laptop, to your own flash drive, to your own portable hard drive, or online storage. Or you can purchase blank DVDs at the front desk (Aggie Express only) for 35¢ each, and save the files to DVDs. When finished, just return the drive to the front desk and pick up your activity card.

Also, Nathan has put together a couple of websites recently - Phenomenal Websites, Open Education Resources (OER) Free Educational Resources Online, and Gifted and Talented education resources. Have a look! They both link to many of the web's best resources.

Also, we are publishing a monthly newsletter, TeacherLINK TechBytes, that contains resources, tutorials, and more!

Please note that free apps usually will not remain free for long. If you find they are now paid apps - they were free when I last checked them. Please check the TeacherLINK blog for the newest posts.
