For information on becoming highly qualified, visit the Kansas Department of Education site.

Adding a new licensure endorsement requires a passing score on the appropriate content assessment.

Score reporting

  • If you test in Kansas at a test center or at home, and your Praxis profile address is in Kansas, your score report will be sent automatically to the Kansas Department of Education. You may select up to three recipients at no charge during registration or purchase additional score reports after you test.
  • If you test outside Kansas or your Praxis profile address is not in Kansas, your scores are NOT automatically sent to the Kansas Department of Education. To have your scores sent to the Kansas Department of Education, you must select the Kansas Department of Education (state code 7270) as a score recipient when you register.
  • For all methods of Praxis testing, to request additional score reports you must select the Kansas Department of Education (state code 7270) with each additional score report request.
