Unless it’s specifically stated that a calculator is permitted or required for a particular test, you can’t use a calculator on any Praxis tests (see Calculator Use).
If you test in Connecticut at a test center or at home and your Praxis profile address is in Connecticut, your score report will be sent automatically to the Connecticut State Department of Education. However, please note that the score may not be accepted unless your correct Social Security number appears on the score report.
If you test outside Connecticut or your Praxis profile address is not in Connecticut, your scores are NOT automatically sent to the Connecticut State Department of Education. To have your scores sent to the Connecticut State Department of Education, you must select the Connecticut State Department of Education (state code 7050) as a score recipient when you register.
For all methods of Praxis testing, to request additional score reports you must select the Connecticut State Department of Education (state code 7050) with each additional score report request.
