EDU 567: Seminar in Early Childhood Education: PRAXIS Preparation

This guide will assist students in EDU 567 with their research needs and assignments.

Announcement: Praxis Client Practice

On August 31, 2016, a revised Praxis client practice document will be posted on EasyServe with the following changes for the 2016-2017 Praxis testing year:

  • Effective September 1, 2016, test takers will no longer be permitted to bring their own calculators for Praxis assessments that provide an on-screen calculator. They will be required to use the on-screen calculator provided in the test. (Test taker-supplied calculators will continue to be permitted for exams that allow a calculator but do not offer an on-screen calculator.) The Praxis website has been updated to inform test takers.
  • Either Praxis tests currently administered in limited testing windows will move to continuous testing in September and November.
  • New iBT exams are being added.

Please check for the revised Praxis client practice on August 31 to be sure you have the latest information.

Accommodations for Test Takers with Disabilities

 

ETS is committed to serving test takers with disabilities or health-related needs by providing services and accommodations that are reasonable and appropriate given the purpose of the test. Testing accommodations are available for test takers with disabilities or health-related needs who meet ETS requirements.

Registration Procedures

The Bulletin Supplement for Test Takers with Disabilities or Health-related Needs(PDF) contains procedures for requesting testing accommodations and forms. The Supplement should be used in conjunction with the information in The Praxis®Information Bulletin (PDF).

Note: All test takers requesting any accommodations must register through ETS Disability Services and have their accommodations approved before their test can be scheduled. Your request should be mailed or emailed as early as possible, especially if you are requesting an alternate test format. Documentation review takes approximately six weeks once your request and complete paperwork have been received. If additional documentation must be submitted, it can be another six weeks from the time the new documentation is received until the review is complete. Test takers requesting accommodations cannot register using the online registration system.

Although you must register through ETS Disability Services, you must still create aMy Praxis account to view scores online and order additional score reports.

If you have a health-related need that requires you to bring equipment, beverages, or snacks into the testing room, or to take extra or extended breaks, you must follow the accommodations request procedures in the Bulletin Supplement for Test Takers with Disabilities or Health-related Needs (PDF).

How to Register

  • Review The Praxis® Information Bulletin (PDF) for testing procedures and dates.
  • Complete the Test Authorization Voucher Request Form (PDF).
  • Review the Bulletin Supplement for Test Takers with Disabilities or Health-related Needs (PDF), complete the required forms and assemble the required eligibility documentation.
  • Submit all forms, documentation and test fees to ETS Disability Services as early as possible, especially if you are requesting an alternate test format. If you prefer to pay online, do not send your payment. You can pay online after your accommodation has been approved.
  • Documentation review takes approximately six weeks once your request and complete paperwork have been received. If additional documentation must be submitted, it can be another six weeks from the time the new documentation is received until the review is complete.
  • Wait for your authorization letter, which will include important scheduling information.
  • Once you receive your authorization letter, schedule your test. Be prepared to provide the authorization/voucher number and the information contained in the letter.

If you need to take a Praxis test outside the United States for employment, certification or entrance into a teacher education program in the United States, please contact the Praxis program at praxis@ets.org.
