Understanding Your Praxis Scores

The following explains how to interpret your score report and what to do if you have questions about your scores.
 

The test-taker score report

Your score report indicates:

  • your score
  • whether you passed, based on the score recipients you selected
  • the range of possible scores
  • the raw points available in each content category
  • the range of the middle 50% of scores on that test
  • if you have taken the same test or other Praxis tests over the last 10 years, the highest score you earned on each test taken

To see a sample score report, download Interpreting Your Praxis® Test-taker Score Report (PDF).
 

Content category scores and score interpretation

On many of the Praxis tests, questions are grouped into content categories. To help you in future study or in preparing to retake the test, your score report shows how many "raw points" you earned in each content category. Compare your "raw points earned" with the maximum number of points you could have earned ("raw points available"). The greater the difference, the greater the opportunity to improve your score by further study.
 

Score scale changes

ETS updates the Praxis tests on a regular basis to ensure they accurately measure the knowledge and skills required for licensure. Updated tests cover the same content as the previous tests. However, scores are reported on a different scale, so requirements may vary between the new and previous versions. All scores for the previous, discontinued tests are valid and reportable for 10 years.
 

Score review

If you feel your Praxis scores haven’t been reported correctly or don’t accurately reflect your performance, score review is available for a fee for constructed-response questions. Score review isn’t available for selected-response questions because they’re scored once at test centers, then verified at ETS before being reported.

To learn more about the score review process, view The Praxis® Tests Information Bulletin (PDF).

To request a review, download and complete the Score Review Request Form (PDF) and send it to ETS with the fee. You must submit your request within 3 months of your test date.
