All Praxis exams must be taken and passed as a prerequisite to student teaching.

We recommend that you take your Praxis exams no later than 6 months prior to your student teaching experience; this provides for retake time in case of failing results.

Students are responsible to research, understand, and register for their own Praxis exams.  By policy, university employees cannot tell students which exams to take. 

For more information, please visit:, the ADC of your major, or your program lead.

Be aware that the state of Idaho may change the Praxis requirements at any time. Make sure you are taking the correct, current test.
