Praxis tests are standardized tests that many states use in their teacher licensure and certification processes. There are two main types of Praxis tests: Praxis I and Praxis II.  Praxis I, or Pre-Professional Skills Test (PPST), is utilized in the admissions process for teacher education programs.  Praxis I measures basic academic skills.  The Praxis II tests cover a wide variety of specific content areas.   The Praxis II tests are often required before student teaching begins.
