The Praxis Series tests measure teacher candidates’ knowledge and skills. The tests are used for licensing and certification processes and include:

Praxis I Pre-Professional Skills Tests (PPST)
These tests measure basic skills in reading, writing and mathematics. In addition to licensure, these tests are often used to qualify candidates for entry into a teacher education program.
