Praxis I (PPST) - Reading, Writing and Math
The Praxis I is a standardized test, offered by Educational Testing Services (ETS), designed to evaluate abilities in reading, writing, and math.
ETS offers two versions of the Praxis I test:
- A Computer-based test is offered at a number of test sites across the country and is available by appointment. We recommend registering 5 weeks in advance of your desired test date. Appointments are limited.
- A Paper-based test is offered at a number of test sites across the country on specific test dates.
To register for either version of the Praxis I and for test fees, visit Educational Testing Service (ETS).
Special accommodations are available for students with documented disabilities or English as a Second Language. Accommodation forms are available on the ETS website and it can take 2-4 months to get accommodations approved by ETS.
