ATI TEAS Testing


What is the ATI TEAS test?

The Assessment Technology Institute®, ATI, is the company who publishes the ATI TEAS test. The Test of Essential Academic Skills (TEAS) is a scholastic aptitude assessment that is used as one component of the selection process for admitting students into health professions and nursing selective admissions.

The ATI TEAS consists of four content areas: Reading, Math, Science, and English. All subtests contain multiple choice items with one correct answer. The applicant is directed to answer each item as accurately as possible within the allotted time. The reporting system for the ATI TEAS includes a composite score for each of the four general areas. You can learn more about the ATI TEAS at atiteasprep.com.

  • Reading: paragraph comprehension, passage comprehension, and inferences/conclusions
  • Math: whole numbers, metric conversion, fractions and decimals, algebraic equations, percentages, and ratio/proportions and graphs
  • Science: basic aspects of earth, physical, and biological sciences
  • English: measures knowledge of punctuation, grammar, sentence structure, contextual words, and spelling

When can I take the TEAS test?

ATI TEAS testing can be scheduled at either the Findlay Campus or the Toledo Campus Testing Centers Monday through Friday until January 12, 2018. Call the Testing Center for more details and to schedule your appointment.
