Interpreting Scores

What Do Score Reports Include?

  • name

  • background information
  • educational information
  • detailed content category performance (for current scores).

Total Test Scores

The score report indicates the test taker's score, the range of possible scores, and the range of the middle 50 percent of scores for the test. If the ParaPro Assessment was taken over the last 10 years, the test taker's score report lists their highest earned score.

Determining Passing Scores

Score reports include passing information, as established by the state or district where the test was given. See the State and School District Requirements page for qualifying score information. Information is also included in Understanding Your Praxis™ Scores, and The Praxis Series™ Passing Scores.

Content Category Score Interpretation

The test questions are grouped into content categories. This helps identify content areas where further study can improve scores. Score reports show the "raw points" (number of questions answered correctly) in each content category. It also shows the number of raw points available in each category and the range of points earned by the middle 50 percent of test takers.
