The Praxis tests measure teacher candidates’ knowledge and skills. The tests are used for licensing and certification processes and include:
Praxis I Pre-Professional Skills Tests (PPST®)
These tests measure basic skills in reading, writing and mathematics. In addition to licensure, these tests are often used to qualify candidates for entry into a teacher education program.
Praxis II Subject Assessments
These tests measure subject-specific content knowledge, as well as general and subject-specific teaching skills, that you need for beginning teaching.
