The PRAXIS Program, a product of the Educational Testing Services (ETS), includes 3 different types of assessments:
- The Praxis Series assessments correspond to two key milestones in a teacher candidate’s career – entering a teacher training program, and obtaining a license to teach. The Praxis I Pre-Professional Skills Tests (PPST) measure basic skills in reading, writing, and mathematics. The Praxis II Subject Assessments measure subject –specific content knowledge and pedagogical knowledge.
- The ParaPro Assessment measures the reading, writing and basic math competencies of practicing and prospective paraprofessionals and can be used to certify teacher’s aides and assistants.
- The School Leadership Series – comprised of the School Leaders Licensure Assessment (SLLA) and the School Superintendent Assessment (SSA) – is used by states as part of the licensure process for principals, superintendents, and school leaders.
