Praxis Core Academic Skills for Educators Test
As of June 1, 2014, the test known as Praxis I (PPST) will no longer be offered or required. The new test is called the Praxis Core Academic Skills for Educators Tests. There are three components/tests (math, reading, and writing).
Required Core Academic Skills for Educators Test scores set by The State Board of Education are:
If individual test scores do not meet each requirement above, a combined score of 468 satisfies the requirement.
Individuals with a total SAT score of 1100 (Verbal and Quantitative only) are exempt from Praxis Core Academic Skills for Educators testing requirements for teacher education program admission.
Individuals with a composite ACT score of 24 are exempt from Core Academic Skills for Educators testing requirements for teacher education program admission.
The Core Academic Skills for Educators tests are computer-based, administered by the Educational Testing Service (ETS) and can be completed at a variety of testing centers at scheduled times during the year (to register go to http://www.ets.org/praxis .) Students should identify Mid-Atlantic Christian University (#5427) when registering for Core Academic Skills for Educators tests.
Students who are required to take the Core Academic Skills for Educators tests will be required to take a one semester hour course titled ED 237 Praxis Preparation Seminar, which will provide academic Support to help them prepare for the exams. Elementary Education majors will be required to pass the Core Academic Skills tests before entering their junior year.
