Praxis I Core Academic Writing: Research Skills Objectives
The Praxis I Core exam is a part of the teacher licensure process in some states, and institutions use the test for entrance to teacher education programs. Questions about research skills are part of the Language and Research Skills for Writing portion of the exam. The research skills questions are in multiple-choice format. You'll be asked questions designed to determine your understanding of basic research processes and whether or not you can apply that knowledge to scenarios that might occur when doing academic research.
Research skills questions may have more than one answer that might seem correct. The skills you'll learn in this chapter will help you refine your approach to questions on research skills to determine the best possible answer. When you take the self-assessment quizzes, you'll get a chance to familiarize yourself with the types of questions you'll see on the actual exam.
