Tests required for all licensure areas
Beginning teachers in all content areas must pass all three Praxis Core Academic Skills for Educators (Core) tests.
Teacher education program graduates are required to pass the Core tests specifically for admission into a teacher education program (unless they meet an institution's ACT® test score requirement).
If you wish to take all three computer-delivered Core exams (5713, 5723, 5733) at the same time, select Core Academic Skills for Educators: Combined Test (5752) when registering. Scores will be reported by individual test (5713, 5723, 5733).
Teacher education program graduates for all content areas must pass the Principles of Learning and Teaching (PLT) test that most closely matches the grade levels of the license sought. The PLT test is not required for alternate route candidates.
1 Supplemental endorsements can be added to a 3- or 5-year license with a Qualifying Score on this Praxis subject area test. 2 Passing scores earned on or before 8/31/2021 will be accepted through 8/31/2023.
