Praxis I & II

Praxis I & II Testing are no longer available for licensure requirements for Indiana.  

Praxis I has switched to: CASA Testing: website:  http://www.in.nesinc.com

Praxis II has switched to:  CORE Assessment Testing:  Website:  http://www.in.nesinc.com/Home.aspx

There will be a transition period of overlapping ETS Praxis II and Indiana CORE content and pedagogy assessments. We will accept Indiana’s approved ETS PRAXIS II content exams until May 31, 2014. Applicants must have taken the Praxis II exam(s) by May 31, 2014 in order for the exam(s) to be accepted for licensure (assuming the candidate achieves a passing score). However, candidates may instead choose to take the appropriate Indiana CORE Assessment(s) in their content area(s) any time beginning February 10, 2014.
