Do I Have To?
Do I have to take the Tech Test?
Of course you don't. HOWEVER, YOU MUST MEET THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA TECHNOLOGY REQUIREMENTS SPELLED OUT IN AB 1023. Read on.
Students who have taken EDIT 122 or an equivalent 3-credit course (it must be a microcomputer course designed for teachers) do not need to take the test.
NOTE: Courses such as Pascal, Statistics for Engineers, Graphing for Social Science majors, and Introduction to Networking are not equivalent to EDIT 122.
If you are unsure whether a course is equivalent to EDIT 122, you may stop by SH 404 with a transcript and syllabus from the course that you believe to be equivalent.
