What are the components of the Praxis I?

The Praxis I, or Pre-Professional Skills Test (PPST), consists of three exams: reading, writing, and mathematics. In most colleges and universities, a passing score must be earned for admission to teacher education. In most states, a passing score must be earned before the teacher education graduate can apply for his or her teaching license or certificate.

What are the Praxis II® Tests?

Praxis II® Subject Assessments measure knowledge of specific subjects that K–12 educators will teach, as well as general and subject-specific teaching skills and knowledge.

Who takes the Praxis II tests and why?

Individuals entering the teaching profession take the Praxis II tests as part of the teacher licensing and certification process required by many states. Some professional associations and organizations require Praxis II tests as a criterion for professional licensing decisions.

How are the Praxis II tests given?

The Subject Assessments include over 120 different tests. The test(s) you take depend(s) on your state or licensing agency's requirements for the teaching discipline you are pursuing. Each state that uses the Praxis tests sets its own requirements for which tests you must take, as well as the associated passing scores.Praxis II tests are available in paper-delivered and computer-delivered formats. (Not all tests are offered in both formats.) They are administered through an international network of test centers, which includes Prometric test centers, some universities, and other locations throughout the world. You may take up to four tests on a given day depending on the length of each test. If you take a test that is longer than two hours, it must be scheduled in Session 1, and you may not schedule any additional tests on that day.

How can I prepare for the Praxis tests?

We recommend that you work with our Praxis instructor to review the Praxis Series Information Bulletin (PDF), which provides information on registration, test day procedures, and score reporting, study the Praxis test preparation materials and work with our instructor to use your results on the full-length practice tests to target your studying. This pdf, will help you to understand your Praxis scores.

Should I guess?

All test takers receive a score regardless of the number of questions answered or the type of test. Your score is based on the number of questions you answer correctly, with no penalty or subtraction for answering a question incorrectly. It is to your advantage to pace yourself so that you have enough time to carefully consider every question.

How much does it cost to take an Praxis test?

The fees for taking the various Praxis tests are listed here.
