How to Qualify for Admission to Teacher Education in Oklahoma
Who Must Take the Tests?
The Praxis Core may be taken by students seeking entry into teacher preparation programs who do not meet the grade-point average (GPA) requirement.
Students with baccalaureate degrees from accredited universities in the United States are assumed to have the basic skills competencies tested by the Praxis Core tests and may be exempt from the Praxis Core requirement.
If you test in Oklahoma, your score report will be sent automatically to the Oklahoma Regents for Higher Education. If you test outside of Oklahoma, select the Oklahoma Regents for Higher Education (state code 6537) as a score recipient when you register or on an additional score report request.
Meeting cut scores, established by state educators, will be recognized by all teacher education institutions as qualification for admission to teacher education programs, in conjunction with other criteria.
If a test score does not meet the minimum on any Praxis Core test, the student will be allowed to retest. Universities provide advising and academic assistance. It is recommended that students pass the general education courses prior to taking the Praxis Core tests.
