According to the U.S. Virgin Island's Board of Education's Certification document, there are also general course requirements for any person who would like to teach in the U.S. Virgin Islands. Elementary school teachers need 36 education credits, and secondary school teachers need 26 education credits.
ETS discontinued paper-delivered testing; however, Praxis tests will continue to be available in a paper-delivered format as required for ADA accommodations. All scores for previously administered paper-delivered tests are reportable for 10 years from the date the test was taken.
Who must take the tests?
Every new secondary school teacher or elementary content area teacher (art, music, physical education, etc.) must take and pass the Praxis Core Academic Skills for Educators (Core) tests, which consist of Reading, Writing and Mathematics sections.
Elementary K–6 teachers must take the Praxis Subject Assessments examination in Elementary Education: Content Knowledge.
Candidates who do not have a content area major must take the appropriate Praxis tests for each area of certification they seek.
