Basic Information

The PRAXIS tests are taken by individuals entering the teaching profession as part of the certification process required by many states and professional licensing organizations. PRAXIS offers a variety of computer-based certification exams for K-12 teachers. 

The PRAXIS tests measure teacher candidates’ knowledge and skills. The tests are used for licensing and certification processes and include:

  • PRAXIS Core Academic Skills for Educators (Core)
    These tests measure academic skills in reading, writing and mathematics. They were designed to provide comprehensive assessments that measure the skills and content knowledge of candidates entering teacher preparation programs.
  • PRAXIS Subject Assessments
    These tests measure subject-specific content knowledge, as well as general and subject-specific teaching skills, that you need for beginning teaching. 
  • PRAXIS Content Knowledge for Teaching Assessments (CKT)
    These tests measure subject-specific content knowledge, with a focus on specialized content knowledge used in K–12 teaching. 

Each state and licensing organization determines its own certification and PRAXIS passing score requirements. For more information about certification requirements, visit the state requirements section at
