Praxis Core (and Waiver Options)


Math: A new PRAXIS CORE math test has been created, with a new test number.  It has been adopted by the NJ Department of Education and is available for use as of September 1, 2019.  You have the option to take the new test (5733) or the current test (5732).  It is expected that the 5732 test will only be offered through August 2020. 

 Reading and Writing:  From September 1, 2019- August 2020 ETS will be offering two test numbers for reading and writing.  The content is the same and the tests have NOT been revised.  Students have the choice of the current or new test numbers for reading and writing.
