On many of the Praxis tests, questions are grouped into content categories. To help you in future study or in preparing to retake the test, your score report shows how many "raw points" you earned in each content category. Compare your "raw points earned" with the maximum number of points you could have earned ("raw points available"). The greater the difference, the greater the opportunity to improve your score by further study.
ETS updates the Praxis tests on a regular basis to ensure they accurately measure the knowledge and skills required for licensure. Updated tests cover the same content as the previous tests. However, scores are reported on a different scale, so requirements may vary between the new and previous versions. All scores for the previous, discontinued tests are valid and reportable for 10 years.
If you feel your Praxis scores haven’t been reported correctly or don’t accurately reflect your performance, score review is available for a fee for constructed-response questions. Score review isn’t available for selected-response questions because they’re scored once at test centers, then verified at ETS before being reported.

To request a review, download and complete the Score Review Request Form (PDF) and send it to ETS with the fee. You must submit your request within 3 months of your test date.
