The ATI Test of Essential Academic Skills (TEAS) is a scholastic aptitude assessment that can be used as one component of the selection process for admitting test takers into the College of Nursing.
The ATI TEAS is composed of 170 questions, 20 of which are unscored pretest items. Thus, the number of scored questions on which individuals will be evaluated is 150. The total time allotted to complete the test is 209 minutes. The test is one assessment comprised of four sections: Math, Reading, Science, and English and Language Usage.
The ATI TEAS allows for the use of a four function calculator. However, test takers are not allowed to bring their own calculator as a calculator will be embedded within the online version of the exam.
Test takers may purchase the ATI TEAS study manual which can be purchased through the ATI online store.
The Division of Continuing Education at UCF is now offering a TEAS Review program.
The office of Student Accessibility Services (SAS) works in collaboration with the University Testing Center (UTC) to ensure that reasonable accommodations are made for students with documented disabilities. Students with disabilities seeking accommodations for placement tests must have approval from the SAS office (407-823-2371 or firstname.lastname@example.org). Note: test takers should allow at least two (2) weeks for SAS and UTC to process the accommodation request once the formal request has been submitted to SAS.
Once UTC receives notification from the SAS office of a test takers testing accommodations, a UTC staff member will notify the student via email.
Note: Test takers seeking to test with accommodations must schedule their appointment time for Monday-Friday at 12:30 PM or earlier.
An ATI Testing account is required for every test taker who wishes to take an exam at UTC. If you do not have an account, navigate to the ATI Testing website, click on Create Account and complete the user information page.
UCF will be listed under Institution as “U of Central FL Orlando.”
