Oregon Test Requirements

Find your licensure area below to determine which test you need to take and see the minimum qualifying score. To learn more about a specific test, click the test title. Once you know your test(s), find out how to register for Praxis® tests and read the Praxis test retake policy.

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 at a testing center or using the Praxis at home solution, and your Praxis profile address is in Oregon, your score report will be sent automatically to the Oregon Teacher Standards and Practices Commission.

If you test outside Oregon or your Praxis profile address is not in Oregon, your scores are NOT automatically sent to the Oregon Teacher Standards and Practices Commission. To have your scores sent to the Oregon Teacher Standards and Practices Commission, you must select the Oregon Teacher Standards and Practices Commission (state code 8700) as a score recipient when you register.

For all methods of Praxis testing, to request additional score reports you must select the Oregon Teacher Standards and Practices Commission (state code 8700) with each additional score report request.
