Praxis II Subject Assessments measure knowledge of specific subjects that K-12 educators will teach, as well as general and subject-specific teaching skills and knowledge.

Individuals entering the teaching profession take the Praxis II tests as part of the teacher licensing and certification process required by the state of Alabama – and many others.

Praxis II tests are available in computer-delivered formats only. They are administered by an international network of test centers which includes Prometric test centers, some universities, and other locations throughout the world. The University Testing Center administers the Praxis exam for all College of Education students. Please visit the Center’s website for scheduling information.

The passing of all required Praxis II exams remains a clearance requirement for the final semester of Internship. The deadline for scores to be received is located under FAQ #1.  Plan your time wisely. Scores are reported in the following manner:

  • Selected Response Test (Multiple Choice) scores are reported 10-11 Business Days after the Testing Window closes.
  • Constructed Response Test scores are reported 15-16 Business days after the Testing Window closes.
