What to Bring

  • Admission ticket and photo ID (or any other required acceptable and valid identification)
  • Do NOT bring your own pencils or erasers. They will be supplied by the test center.
  • A calculator if allowed for your test (see Calculator Use)
  • IMPORTANT: The Art: Content and Analysis test (5135) requires you to upload four digital images of your artwork to your My Praxis® Account. Print a copy of each image from your My Praxis account and bring it with you on test day. It is extremely important that you bring the printout of all four digital reproductions of your work to the testing site. The image ID number appearing on the printouts is a critical part of the art-making responses. You will be asked to enter this image ID as the first line of your response when taking the test. You must upload these images no later than 48 hours before the test date. For more information about the requirements for these images, please see the Study Companion.
