Praxis Interactive Practice Tests

ETS has developed interactive practice tests to help prepare for Praxis exams.  These full-length practice tests provide authentic test questions in an environment that simulates the computer-delivered test. The practice test is timed just like the real test and allows you to move easily from question to question to simulate what you will experience on the day of the test. After completing the test, you can also see the correct answers and explanations for each correct answer and view your results by content category.

Each subscription consists of a single practice test and is valid for 90 days after the first use, or 10 uses, whichever comes first.  The cost for these interactive tests is $19.95  To find an interactive practice test for the test(s) that you are taking, click here.


Beginning in the fall 2018 semester, basic skills proficiency for mathematics and reading will be based on ACT scores.  The Praxis Core will no longer be an option for reading and mathematics. Those candidates who have already taken the Praxis Core test(s) may continue taking the test.  Those candidates who are beginning the process in the fall 2018 semester, should take ACT mathematics and/or ACT reading.
