Scores are determined based on the structure of the specific Praxis test.
Selected-response answer sheets are scored by machine, which gives virtually 100% scoring accuracy.
Each constructed-response or essay response is scored by trained, supervised scorers who follow strict scoring procedures.
Some tests may include pretest questions — one or more new questions that are being evaluated for possible use in future editions of the test.
