Praxis Information

Click here for information on required exams.

Elementary Education Teacher Candidates can take either the 5001 PRAXIS series or the 7811 PRAXIS series for their PRAXIS II content exam. This will be in addition to the Principles of Learning and Teaching exam also required. Candidates may “mix and match” the exam—for instance, pass the English, Math, and Science sub-exams for the 5001 series and the Social Studies sub-exam from the 7811 for certification. Please note it is the candidate’s responsibility to ensure he/she has taken and passed the correct exams prior to student teaching.
