Instructions: Click on the question to see the answers. These are standard questions that students typically ask about the "Praxis I" and "Praxis II" tests. If your question is not listed here, please feel free to contact your Program Director or the School of Education (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more details.
During the 2013-2014 academic year, most students should plan on taking the Praxis I: CORE test, but it depends. If you are planning on completing and passing your Benchmark I before May 31, 2014, you can still take the Praxis I: PPST test. Still not sure? Talk to the Praxis Tutor (email@example.com) or contact Dang Yang in the School of Education at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The "Praxis I: CORE" test is similar to the traditional "Praxis I: PPST" test in that it measures academic skills in reading, writing, and mathematics. Starting on September 1, 2014, the "Praxis I: PPST" test will be retired and will no longer be available. After that date, the "Praxis I: CORE" test will be the only Praxis I test available.
To learn more about what is covered on the "Praxis I: CORE" test, visit the ETS website here.
We recommend taking the Praxis I test during your Freshmen or Sophomore year, near the time that you take or complete your Math 118 and English 101 courses. If you are a transfer student, we recommend taking the Praxis I test during your first year on campus after speaking to your Program Director or to a Praxis Tutor. Still not sure? Feel free to contact a Praxis Tutor for help (email@example.com) or Dang Yang in the School of Education at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For Praxis I:
For Praxis II:
The Praxis I test is the same test for all teaching majors. It measures your skills in Reading, Writing, and Math. The Praxis II test is different for each major. This test attempts to measure how much you know about your teaching content (i.e. Science Ed. majors will be tested on science-related concepts, Art Ed. majors will be tested on art-related concepts, etc.).
