Score reporting

  • If you test in California at a test center or at home, 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.
