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.
Praxis I & II Preparation Resources are available from the Mississippi Library Commission.
Once you enter the Learn-A-Test website, click on the “jobs and careers” icon and then the “teaching” icon. You will then see that Praxis I and Praxis II preparation tests are available. To take the tests, applicants simply provide a user name and password. They can then take the tests as often as they like. Also, the practice tests offer instant grades so applicants can better recognize their strengths and weaknesses.
