About The Praxis Series® Tests

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. See Praxis Core information.
  • 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. See Praxis II information.

State Testing Requirements

Each state and licensing organization determines its own certification and Praxis® passing score requirements. For more information about certification requirements, visit the state requirements section.
