Praxis I (PPST) Test Information
Praxis tests are standardized tests that many states use in their teacher licensure and certification processes.
The Praxis I test is comprised of three separate tests. The Praxis I Reading Test assess your reading comprehension and ability to evaluate written passages. The Praxis I mathematics test measures your knowledge of basic mathematical concepts typical of an educated adult. The Praxis I writing test measures your written communication skills and use of grammar.
The Praxis I tests are multiple-choice tests with essays for the writing test. The Praxis I tests may be taken as a computer-based test (CBT) or as a paper-based test (PBT). With either format, you can choose to take each of the three tests separately (on separate days) or as a combined test.
