Educator Licensure

Praxis Test Information

Mississippi requires that all educators pass a rigorous test to comply with licensure guidelines and with No Child Left Behind standards. The Praxis series offered through Educational Testing Service are the tests approved by the Mississippi State Board of Education. On the attached link is a list of Praxis exams approved in Mississippi as well as ETS contact information.

The Office of Educator Licensure does not accept photocopies of Praxis scores. We must receive them electronically from ETS or we must receive the original score report.
