Overview of Vermont Testing Requirements

How to qualify for licensure

For initial licensure in Vermont, all candidates must:

Score reporting

  • If you test in Vermont at a test center or at home, and your Praxis profile address is in Vermont, your score report will be sent automatically to the Vermont Agency of Education.
  • If you test outside Vermont or your Praxis profile address is not in Vermont, your scores are not automatically sent to the Vermont Agency of Education. To have your scores sent to the Vermont Agency of Education, you must select the Vermont Agency of Education (state code 8410) as a score recipient when you register.
  • For all methods of Praxis testing, to request additional score reports you must select the Vermont Agency of Education (state code 8410) with each additional score report request.

Important information

  • 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.
