Praxis Core Test Dates
Praxis Core exams designed to tests educators' basic math, writing and reading skills can be taken throughout the year at qualified testing centers. You can sign up for each test separately or register for a combined test if you'd rather get this testing requirement out of the way in one test session.
To help you review for core tests, Study.com offers self-paced courses that include short video lessons and quizzes covering each topic found on these exams:
Praxis Subject Assessment Test Dates
Formally known as Praxis II tests, these subject tests are administered during testing windows that last around twelve days each. Testing windows for an exam can be offered anywhere from two to eight times a year. The ETS website contains a drop-down list that tells available test dates for a particular subject assessment.
Study.com also offers test-prep courses for Praxis Subject Assessments in subjects including:
Praxis Braille Proficiency Assessment Test Dates
In Mississippi, West Virginia, Rhode Island, and Virginia, state boards require special education teachers for the visually impaired to pass the Braille Proficiency exam, which lasts about four hours. There are generally several test dates available in the spring and fall. Regular registration deadlines are one month prior to the test date, with extended and emergency deadlines available in the following weeks.
Praxis ASL Assessment Test Dates
Praxis also operates an interview-style exam for American Sign Language. The exam can be conducted in person in Washington D.C., or via video conferencing from other locations. Be sure to check the ETS website for information on the next available exam dates.
Before you register for a Praxis exam, make sure you check your state's testing requirements. These can vary from one state or territory to the next. For example, Michigan does not require Praxis exams for aspiring teachers, while New Jersey stipulates that applicants for teacher licensing pass the Praxis Core tests in addition to Subject Assessments in their teaching area. A directory of testing requirements by state is available on the ETS website.
