The College of Education requires that all professional internship students SUBMIT A PAPER COPY of their score report(s) indicating a passing score achieved on the Praxis II test(s) required for their area(s) of certification as defined above BEFORE a student may perform the professional internship.  The paper copy of the ETS score report(s) must be submitted to the Teaching Performance Center in Willis 110 no later than August 1st for internships in the Fall and Winter semesters and by November 1st for the Spring and Summer semesters.  A student will be withdrawn from his/her placement and unable to participate in the professional internship if this submission requirement is not met.  Questions and answers about this policy and the Praxis are available at    www.kean.edu/~tpc.  Registration and further information on Praxis II can be found at www.ets.org/praxis.

 

*Students seeking initial certification with the Teacher of Students w/Disabilities (TSD) endorsement will be required to take and pass the Praxis II exam(s) for their content area certification(s) in order to meet the COE policy; for example: TSD/K-5 Elementary candidates are required to pass Praxis II test #0014; TSD/K-12 Math candidates are required to pass Praxis II #0061 Mathematics Content Knowledge test to perform the internship; TSD/P-3 candidates are required to pass #0022 Early Childhood Content Knowledge in order to student teach; candidates seeking K-5/5-8 with the TSD will be required to pass both the Elementary Education Content Knowledge test #0014 AND the middle school content area exam.
