ABOUT PRAXIS TEST
A Praxis test is one of a series of American teacher certification exams written and administered by the Educational Testing Service. Various Praxis tests are usually required before, during, and after teacher training courses in the U.S. The Praxis tests measure teacher candidates’ knowledge and skills.
The Praxis assessments cover many different subject areas. Each state requires a different combination of Praxis exams for certification.
The Praxis® tests measure teacher candidates’ knowledge and skills. The tests are used for licensing and certification processes and include:
- Praxis® Core Academic Skills for Educators (Core)
These tests measure academic skills in reading, writing and mathematics. They were designed to provide comprehensive assessments that measure the skills and content knowledge of candidates entering teacher preparation programs. See Praxis Core information.
- Praxis® Subject Assessments
These tests measure subject-specific content knowledge, as well as general and subject-specific teaching skills, that you need for beginning teaching. See Praxis Subject Assessments information.
- Praxis® Content Knowledge for Teaching Assessments (CKT)
These tests measure subject-specific content knowledge, with a focus on specialized content knowledge used in K–12 teaching. See Praxis Content Knowledge for Teaching Assessments information.

Here’s how Praxis scores are calculated:
Selected-Response (SR) Questions
On most Praxis® tests, each selected-response question answered correctly is worth one raw point, and your total raw score is the number of questions answered correctly on the full test.
Constructed-Response (CR) Questions
Constructed-response questions are scored by education professionals in the appropriate content area. These individuals are carefully trained and supervised to assure they apply E T S scoring methods in a fair and accurate manner.
Some tests consist of one or more essays and a selected-response portion. For some of the Praxis tests that contain both SR and CR items, the ratings assigned by the scorers are simply added together to contribute to your total raw score. On others, the ratings are first multiplied by scoring weights, which can be different for different questions, and the weighted ratings are added to contribute to your total raw score.
Conversion of Raw Scores to Scaled Scores
To ensure that scores obtained from different forms of the same test are comparable, raw scores are converted to scaled scores that carry the same meaning regardless of which test was administered. Scaled scores are used to determine whether test takers have passed the test.
