Praxis Core Replaces Praxis I for Educators

This is a reminder that effective January 1, 2014, the Praxis Core Academic Skills for Educators Test: Reading (5712); Writing (5722); and Mathematics (5732) replaced the Praxis 1 Pre-professional skils test for reading, writing, and mathematics as the assessment for entry into a Virginia approved teacher education program. Individuals who took the Praxis I assessment prior to the December 31, 2013 deadline and meet the criteria are deemed to have taken the prescribed assessment.

Candidates who take the Praxis I after January 1, 2014 will be considered to not be meeting the Virginia Department of Education testing requirements for approved teacher education programs.

If individuals have questions about the Praxis Core, they may contact the Teacher Education Services and Advising office at 757-683-3348.
