In general, unless it is specifically stated that a calculator is permitted or required for a particular test, calculators may not be used on any Praxis tests (see Calculator Use).

If you test in Oregon, your score report will be sent automatically to the Oregon Teacher Standards and Practices Commission. If you test outside of Oregon, select the Oregon Teacher Standards and Practices Commission (state code 8700) as a score recipient when you register or on an additional score report request.

Tests Required for Specific Licensure Areas

Beginning teachers in all content areas must pass all three Praxis® Core Academic Skills for Educators tests (Core). If you wish to take all three Core exams (5712, 5722, 5732) at the same time, select Praxis Core Academic Skills for Educators: Combined Test (5751) when registering.
