California Test Requirements

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 California at a testing center or using the Praxis at home solution, and your Praxis profile address is in California, your score report will be sent automatically to the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing.
  • If you test outside California or your Praxis profile address is not in California, your scores are NOT automatically sent to the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing. To have your scores sent to the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing, you must select the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (state code 8541) as a score recipient when you register.
  • For all methods of Praxis testing, to request additional score reports you must select the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (state code 8541) with each additional score report request.
