Most tests are offered in both Session 1 and Session 2. Refer to the fees page for tests that are restricted to a particular session.

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).

If you test in California, your score report will be sent automatically to the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing. If you test outside of California, select the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (state code 8541) as a score recipient when you register or on an additional score report request.
