Alabama Additional Teaching Field (CBT) Approach

General testing information for all applicants may be found in the Overview of Alabama Testing Requirements. Information regarding the Additional Teaching Field (CBT) Approach may be found at Certification Forms.

There are limitations for certain teaching fields; therefore, individuals who choose to test prior to reviewing the requirements for the CBT approach do so at their own risk.

Applicants for the issuance of Professional Educator Certificates through the Additional Teaching Field Approach must pass the current Praxis II® test(s) of the Alabama Educator Certification Testing Program (AECTP).

Please Note:

Find your certification area below to determine which test(s) you need to take. To learn more about a specific test, click the test title. Once you know which tests you should be taking, find out how to register for Praxis® tests or read the Praxis test retake policy.

Previously accepted Praxis II test(s), which may possibly be accepted to meet current test requirements if specific conditions are met, may be found at Previously Accepted Praxis II Tests.

In general, unless it is specifically stated that a calculator is permitted or required for a particular test, calculators may not be used on any Praxis tests (see Calculator Use).
