ATI TEAS Confirmation


Below are resources to help you learn and prepare for the ATI TEAS exam. 


The ATI Test of Essential Academic Skills (ATI TEAS®) measures basic essential skills in reading, mathematics, science, and English and language usage. These are the areas health educators have deemed most appropriate and relevant for measuring the academic readiness of those applying to health science programs.

ATI TEAS exams are computerized, and administered in group sessions that are supervised by a proctor.

The ATI TEAS exam has a total of 170 questions (150 scored plus 20 unscored “pre-test” items)
covering these topics and areas:
  • Reading (53 questions): Key Ideas and Details; Craft and Structure; Integration of Knowledge and Ideas
  • Math (36 questions): Numbers and Algebra; Measurement and Data
  • Science (53 questions): Human Anatomy and Physiology; Life and Physical Sciences; Scientific Reasoning
  • English and Language Usage (28 questions): Conventions of Standard English; Knowledge of Language; Vocabulary Acquisition

Please note the exam will include a calculator you can use, no personal calculators.

Allow about 4 hours for the entire exam. The Reading, Math, and Science sections will take about one hour, and the English section will
take about a half-hour. Each section will have specific instructions.

Passing composite score requirements vary by program and by campus. Please contact your admissions representative for ATI TEAS pass
scores for each program at your campus.

If you do not pass the ATI TEAS, you may re-take the EXAM after a 30-day waiting period.
