PRAXIS Prep

Time

If you take the tests separately, each session lasts two hours. If you take them combined, the entire session lasts a total of five hours.

Design

Tests include single-selection multiple-choice questions, multiple-selection multiple-choice questions, and numeric entry questions. And then the writing test makes use of two essay questions.

Scoring

On the selective response questions, each correct answer is worth one raw point. Constructed-response questions are scored by two or more professional educators for each specific area.

Reading

For the Reading portion of the exam, they’re looking for your ability to read and analyze multiple documents.

Mathematics

In the Mathematics section, you will be using numeric entry and multiple choice questions to select your answers. An on-screen calculator is provided so no errors are made.

Writing

The Core Writing test assesses two different types of writing – argumentative and informative/explanatory. It will contain one writing task for each.

PRAXIS

HOW THE TEST IS SCORED

When it comes to the PRAXIS test, there are three different ways the test is scored. The first is based on the selective-response answers (multiple choice). These are scored using raw points – basically it’s either right or wrong. If it’s right, you get a raw point. Those are added up at the end for your score. The second is based on the constructed-response answers (essays). These are looked over by two or more professional educators in each respective subject. A score is given based on their scores. Then there’s the combination score which simply takes both your raw score and your constructed-response rating and gives you a total score.

The weights and scales vary from test to test. Be sure to check out the PRAXIS website for all the details.
