Applicants Completing Alternate Route Programs to Add Endorsements

Wyoming does not accept alternate routes for initial licensure. To learn more about how to add an endorsement to a license through Wyoming's alternate route, visit the Professional Teaching Standards Board website.

Find your licensure area below to determine which test you need to take and to 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.

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 Wyoming, your score report will be sent automatically to the Wyoming Professional Teaching Standards Board. If you test outside of Wyoming, select the Wyoming Professional Teaching Standards Board (state code 8500) as a score recipient when you register or on an additional score report request.

Notes:

  • In general, test codes that begin with "5" are delivered in computer format; codes that begin with "0" are delivered on paper.
  • "CDT" refers to computer-delivered tests. "PDT" refers to paper-delivered tests.
