Score reporting

  • If you test outside New Hampshire or your Praxis profile address is not in New Hampshire, your scores are NOT automatically sent to the New Hampshire Department of Education. To have your scores sent to the New Hampshire Department of Education, you must select the New Hampshire Department of Education (state code 7660) as a score recipient when you register.
  • For all methods of Praxis testing, to request additional score reports you must select the New Hampshire Department of Education (state code 7660) with each additional score report request.
