Praxis II Update

Due to changes mandated by the Alabama State Department of Education, students will no longer be required to successfully pass the Content Praxis tests or Reading Praxis Tests before TEP admission. Students must still pass the Praxis Core Basic Skills Test prior to TEP admission, but the additional content Praxis tests must only be successfully passed prior to the internship. The Praxis Principles of Learning and Teaching (PLT) may no longer be required for those completing the edTPA portfolio assessment during the Internship beginning Fall 2018.

Additionally, the passing cut score for all Praxis tests (excluding Praxis Core) is increasing effective September 1, 2018, and will be based on your TEP admission date. If you are admitted into TEP prior to September 1, 2018, any test already passed with the previous scores will be accepted for four (4) years. If you are admitted into TEP on or after September 1, 2018, ALL tests will need to be passed at the new higher score.

Please contact your advisor for more information about Praxis required scores and/or if you have questions.
