Praxis II Test
Most states use the Praxis series of assessments as part of the teacher certification process and a teaching jobs protocol. The Praxis II tests measure knowledge and skills in both general and specific content areas. This battery of assessments covers virtually every subject that could be taught by a kindergarten through 12th-grade teacher, and also includes several general content tests and several tests on pedagogical subjects. These tests are typically taken by individuals who recently entered the teaching profession, and need to demonstrate knowledge and skills in order to obtain licensure or certification in a particular state. Also, several professional associations and organizations for teachers require the Praxis II test before granting membership.
