Receiving Candidates' Scores
ETS provides a Designated Institution Score Report to each institution or agency selected by the candidate at registration. The report includes the candidate’s name, score, pass/no pass score information and other information.
Official scores for Praxis™ computer-delivered tests are mailed to designated score recipients about two to three weeks after the test date. Scores for Praxis paper-delivered tests are mailed within four weeks after the test date. Electronic scores are sent within four weeks after the test date as well.
Please note that your candidates' official score reports will be available online via their Praxis accounts on the score report release date, approximately four weeks after the test date. Their scores will be downloadable and available for one year from the score reporting date.
