Teaching and Leading in Alaska

The Praxis® tests help Alaska educators demonstrate their knowledge of content, pedagogy and instructional skills for the classroom. These tests are important components of Alaska’s licensure and certification process and include:

  • Praxis® Core Academic Skills for Educators (Core) — comprehensive assessments that measure the skills and content knowledge of candidates entering teacher preparation programs
  • Praxis® Subject Assessments — tests that measure general and subject-specific content knowledge that you need for beginning teaching
