Teaching and Leading in New Mexico
Teachers and educators in New Mexico now have full access to ETS's Praxis® tests — to help them demonstrate their knowledge of content, pedagogy and instructional skills for the classroom. Beginning January 1, 2020, the Praxis tests will be offered along with the current provider to support a seamless transition to using all Praxis tests in September 2020. The tests that are now available for New Mexico's licensure and certification process include:
- Praxis® Core Academic Skills for Educators (Core) — comprehensive assessments that measure the skills and content knowledge of candidates entering teacher preparation programs
- Praxis® Subject Assessments — tests that measure general and subject-specific content knowledge that you need for beginning teaching
