The test measures student abilities in reading, mathematics, science, and English and language usage. For the 2022 academic year, several changes to the TEAS test are taking place.

- The reading section will include more longer passages. The TEAS test will now feature longer passages as well as a greater emphasis on finding information within the text.
The format for scoring the test has also changed for 2022. The test is scored on a scale from 0-170. Each section is scored from 0-85. Additionally, the composite score is weighted so that the math and science scores count more heavily than the other sections.
