From September 2019, ETS is updating the test code for Praxis Core Writing. This follows a systematic review of the skills measured by the Praxis Core exams. The skills assessed were reconfirmed as important, so the content of the writing test is not changing, but the code will be updated (previously 5722, now 5723) to make a clear distinction between the tests offered pre- and post-review. This course is fully up-to-date with the new test.
This course was last updated in 2019.

Praxis I Writing Test - Preparation and Registration
We have short, simple and engaging video lessons in each subject area of the exam in order to prepare you for the Praxis I Writing Test. In the chapter on language and sentence structure, you'll learn what makes writing good, how to structure paragraphs and sentences, and how word choice and language set the tone of your essay. Other chapters will cover writing arguments, grammar, informative and explanatory texts, and word choice. Each lesson includes a corresponding quiz written by the instructor, offering you the chance to assess your own knowledge of the material.
You can register for the Praxis I Writing test online, though if you need any accommodations for test-taking (perhaps due to a disability or language barrier), you will have to mail in your registration form and other documentation. You will receive 30 minutes of practice time to become familiar with the hardware and software before you begin the computer-based test.
Though the Praxis I Writing test is offered continually, you'll have to wait 21 days if you want to re-test. If you are a low-income college student, you can apply for a fee waiver if you are currently in school and are required to take the test. Students can only receive one waiver per year, and there are a limited number of waivers available. On the day of the test, make sure you bring your test ticket and photo ID with you.
Praxis I Writing Test - Scoring
Because the test is only available on a computer-based platform, your scores will become available after 2 to 3 weeks from the testing date. For an additional fee, you can learn scores earlier by using a scores-by-phone service. You can also send your scores to up to 3 institutions or licensing agencies for free, and you can order more score reports for an extra cost.
Tests are scored on correctly answered questions, and test-takers won't have points deducted for wrong answers or unanswered questions. Passing scores depend on the institution requiring you to take the exam, but your report will show your state's qualifying score.
