**All Single Subject candidates must show their mastery of their content knowledge by taking the appropriate CSETs. For statistical reasons, only a content area subtest that has more than 10 test takers will show. If you have questions about the pass rates for other CSET content subjects, please contact Melody Lotter, Credential Analyst (ext. 8125) with Point Loma Nazarene University for more specific information.

Passing Rate Disclaimer: Please be aware that these are passing rates for students taking their Content-Area Tests (CSETs), Basic Skills (CBEST), and/or RICA test for the first time. All students must pass their tests before they can apply for a teaching credential and are given whatever study aids and support needed to achieve this goal.
