The Praxis Core Academic Skills for Educators tests are the approved Basic Skills test for program admission. Passing scores must be achieved in Reading, Writing and Mathematics. (Passing Pre-Professional Skills Test (PPST®) scores received prior to September 1, 2014, may also be accepted by institutions for program admission.)
