What are the Praxis tests?
The Core assesses skills in mathematics, reading, and writing of the teacher candidate. In order to enter a College of Education (COE) teaching program, you will have to pass the Praxis Core. Please make an appointment with your education advisor to review the other requirements for entering the program of your choice.
The Praxis II assesses content knowledge in specific subject areas that beginning teachers will need. In order to qualify for your senior field experience, you will have to pass the Praxis II content knowledge in your education major.
