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.
