The Praxis tests are a product of Educational Testing Services
Praxis® Core Academic Skills for Educators (Core) Tests measure academic skills in reading, writing and mathematics. These tests were designed to provide comprehensive assessments that measure the skills and content knowledge of candidates entering teacher preparation programs.
Candidates may choose to take the three sections of the computer-delivered Praxis Core test as one appointment. If taking the test as one appointment, the time allotted for the test is 5 hours. Should a candidate fail any one part of the combined test, that is the only portion for which they must retest. The time allotted for the math or reading test is 2 hours and the time allotted for the writing test is 2.5 hours. Candidates may take the computer-delivered PRAXIS test only once per 21consecutive days, not including the day of the test. Candidates must present one valid current form of Government issued identification such as a driver's license or passport (must have a photo and signature). Scratch paper and pencils are provided.
Test centers may not distribute information or advise examinees about Praxis minimum qualifying scores. This is necessary to prevent inadvertently giving out incorrect information when states modify their score requirements. To view Praxis score requirements, please refer to the Praxis website www.ets.org.
Your official score report will be available online via your My Praxis Account, 2-3 weeks after the test date. Your scores will also be sent to up to four institutions/agencies you selected during the registration process. Online scores are downloadable for one year. After one year, they will no longer be available and you will need to request additional score reports for a $40 fee (per request). We recommend saving a copy of your score report for future reference.
Praxis II: Subject Assessment tests measure knowledge of specific subjects that K-12 educators will teach, as well as general and subject-specific teaching skills and knowledge. There are Subject Assessments, Principles of Learning and Teaching (PLT) Tests and Teaching Foundations Tests. Register for these tests at www.ets.org. The Praxis II Tests are computer-delivered, by appointment, at the Academic Testing Center. See appointment scheduling below.
