The Praxis Series Tests measure teacher candidates' knowledge and skills.  The tests are used for licensing and certification processes and include:

  • Praxis Core Academic Skills for Educators (core).  These tests measure academic skills in reading, writing and mathematics.  They were designed to provide comprehensive assessments that measure the skills and content knowledge of candidates entering teacher preparation programs.
  • Praxis II Subject Assessments.  These tests measure subject-specific content knowledge, as well as general and subject-specific teaching skills that you need for beginning teaching.

Each state and licensing organization determines its own certification and Praxis passing score requirements.  Visit the state requirements section for more information about certification requirements.
