Pennsylvania Highly Qualified Status

Pennsylvania Department of Education

The Highly Qualified tests do not lead to certification. Refer to the Test Requirements table for information on tests required for certification.

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 Pennsylvania, your score report will be sent automatically to the Pennsylvania Department of Education. If you test outside of Pennsylvania, select the Pennsylvania Department of Education (state code 8033) as a score recipient when you register or on an additional score report request.
