Find your licensure area below to determine which test you need to take and see the minimum qualifying score. To learn more about a specific test, click the test title. Once you know your test(s), find out how to register for Praxis® tests and read the Praxis test retake policy.

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 Colorado, your score report will be sent automatically to the Colorado State Department of Education. If you test outside of Colorado, select the Colorado State Department of Education (state code 7040) as a score recipient when you register or on an additional score report request.
