Praxis Test Prep: Your Scores

This guide will help students prepare to take the Praxis II exam.

Score Reports

  • Alabama requires your complete and accurate Social Security number (SSN) to process educator certification paperwork. ETS does not require your SSN for its own purposes, but will submit it to Alabama with your test results. Submitting your registration without your complete and accurate SSN will delay processing of your Alabama certification application.
  • If you test in Alabama, your score report will be sent automatically to the Alabama State Department of Education. If you test outside of Alabama, select the Alabama State Department of Education (state code 7020) as a score recipient when you register or on an additional score report request.
  • Alabama requires official electronic score reports directly from ETS. Alabama does not accept paper score reports. All scores for current and discontinued tests are only reportable by ETS for 10 years from the date the test was taken.

Scores Overview

How to Get Your Scores

For paper-delivered tests, your scores will be available to you online approximately four weeks after your test date. For computer-delivered tests that are offered continuously, your scores will be available online 2–3 weeks after your test date. For computer-delivered tests that are offered during testing windows, your scores will be available online 2–3 weeks after the testing window closes, regardless of the the specific date on which you tested within that window. You can get your scores earlier by utilizing the Scores-by-Phone service. For more information on score reporting dates and accessing scores, see Getting Your Praxis™ Scores.

How to Send Your Scores

During registration, you may identify up to three institutions or licensing agencies to receive yourPraxis scores for free. You may also order additional score reports after the test for a nominal service fee. Learn more about ordering score reports.
