Praxis Scoring

The qualifying score for the Praxis I and Praxis II tests are determined by your grade point average and using the Qualifying Praxis Score Matrix.  If you are an undergraduate major, your GPA is your overall GPA at Cal U. If you are a certification only or graduate student your GPA must be calculated and is based on all the courses you were required to have to be eligible for certification in Pennsylvania, not just what you took at Cal U. See your advisor or program coordinator for details.

Praxis II test-takers:  You will receive your results via email.  SAVE THIS DOCUMENT TO YOUR COMPUTER THE FIRST TIME YOU VIEW IT.  You will need the four-page results when you apply for positions after graduation.
