The Praxis Test

The PRAXIS Series

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

Praxis CORE Pre-Professional Skills Tests (PPST): These tests measure basic skills in reading, writing and mathematics. In addition to licensure, these tests are often used to qualify candidates for entry into a teacher education program.

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.
