To complete the Italian CSET, which serves to establish core competency in Italian for a single-subject credential in California, candidates must register for, and pass TWO separate sub tests: the cultural sub test I & II (General Linguistics, Literature, History, Geography and Culture), and the language sub test III (Oral and written competency).

Fondazione Italia is an Italian Assessor Agency that has been approved to administer ONLY the language sub test III (Listening, Reading, Writing, and Speaking) of the Italian CSET, and report those results back to the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CCTC).

It is the candidates’ responsibility to make sure they have registered for and completed the cultural sub test I & II through the CCTC website. The cultural sub test portion of the Italian CSET administered by the CCTC during the following 4-week testing windows from Apr. 15–May 12, 2019.
