The mounting severity of California's shortage of qualified K-12 science teachers has spurred the University of California, Irvine to develop a free CSET preparation program. The program helps teachers prepare for and pass the California Subject Examinations for Teachers (CSET) and is made available as part of the University's OpenCourseWare initiative.
UC Irvine's free courses should be used as a resource to help teachers identify specific gaps in their subject-matter understanding. Each lesson corresponds to a California Subject Matter Requirement and each topic corresponds to an individual or group of California K-12 Content Standards for Science. The CSET exam itself is tied to these standards.
Courses for CSET Science Subtest I and CSET Science Subtest II exam preparation are available now at http://ocw.uci.edu/courses/?cat=5.
