Professional Assessments for Beginning Teachers
The Praxis Series® is a set of rigorous and carefully validated assessments that provides accurate, reliable information for use by state education agencies in making licensing decisions.
Colleges and universities may also use the basic academic skills assessments to qualify individuals for entry into teacher education programs. The three categories of assessments in The Praxis Series® correspond to the three milestones in teacher development:
- Praxis I: Academic Skills Assessments. Entering a teacher training program
- Praxis II: Subject Assessments. Licensure for entering the profession
- Praxis III: Classroom Performance Assessments. The first year of teaching
