Subject Matter Competence/CSET

Under current teacher credential legislation in California, candidates for a Multiple Subject Teaching Credential must pass the California Subject Examination for Teachers (CSET): Multiple Subject to meet subject matter competence requirements. The Multiple Subject Credential authorizes the holder to teach all subjects in a self-contained classroom where one teacher is responsible for teaching most or all subjects to one group of pupils in the course of a day. Most elementary schools, some preschools, and a few middle schools and high schools (for example, non-departmentalized continuation schools) require this credential. For further information on teaching credentials, see Education.
