Exam information

## What you need to know about the PRAXIS Test

There are many PRAXIS® tests administered by the Educational Testing Service® (ETS®). Regardless of your teaching field or level, you must take the PRAXIS® Core Test, as well as other tests on specialized subject matter. The PRAXIS® Core test measures basic academic skills in reading, writing, and math that teachers should possess before entering a teacher preparation program.

Note: Effective with the September 2019 test administration, there are significant modifications to the PRAXIS® Core Test Math section. All of our materials reflect those changes.

The results may be used in two ways. Colleges often require certain score levels prior to acceptance in their teacher training programs. Many states require submission of scores as part of their teacher licensing or certification process.

All three sections of the PRAXIS® Core test are taken on computer and they are only administered in English. There is a possibility of qualifying for extra time if English is not your native language. Tests of language are not included in this provision.

Actual testing times and number of questions per section are as follows:

• Writing: delivered in two sections—40 minutes to complete 40 multiple-choice questions and 60 minutes to write two essays

Exam facts

### When is it available?

You can take the PRAXIS® Core tests at any one of many worldwide testing centers, at selected colleges and universities, and at some other locations. They are administered during several “testing windows” of time throughout the year at various testing sites. Each state has its own list of specific testing requirements, so be sure to consult the state list to view these state-specific requirements.

### How much time is allowed?

You can take all three tests at the same time and the total testing session will last about 5 hours or you can take each test separately, in which case you need to allow 2 hours per test. These time allotments include instructions for using the computer during the test and time to enter your personal information.
