Overview of Oklahoma Testing Requirements
How to Qualify for Admission to Teacher Education in Oklahoma
Who Must Take the Tests?
The Praxis I PPST may be taken by students seeking entry into teacher preparation programs who do not meet the grade-point average (GPA) requirement.
Students with baccalaureate degrees from accredited universities in the United States are assumed to have the basic skills competencies tested by Praxis I and may be exempt from the Praxis I requirement.
Meeting cut scores, established by state educators, will be recognized by all teacher education institutions as qualification for admission to teacher education programs, in conjunction with other criteria.
If a test score does not meet the minimum on any Praxis I test, the student will be allowed to retest. Universities provide advising and academic assistance. It is recommended that students pass the general education courses prior to taking Praxis I tests.
