The Praxis I Tests (PPST Reading, PPST Mathematics and PPST Writing) are scored on a scale of 150 to 190. For each of the content categories of the specific tests, your Praxis score report will show you how many raw points you earned. For the multiple choice tests, the raw points is simply the number of correct answers. Your scaled score for the multiple choice tests is calculated from the total number or raw points and then adjusted to account for the difficulty of the questions.
For the essay portion of the Praxis I/PPST test (Praxis I Writing), your essays will be reviewed by at least two trained scorers. The scorers will assess your responses against a rating scale that was specifically developed for each test.
