What Tests Do I Need to Take?
Entry into Indiana Educator Preparation Programs. Prospective Indiana educators are required to demonstrate basic skills competency prior to admission to Indiana educator preparation programs.
Effective September 1, 2013, candidates may no longer take Praxis I to satisfy the basic skills competency requirement for entry into Indiana educator preparation programs.
Educator Licensure Assessments. The content area and developmental (pedagogy) area assessments included in the Indiana CORE Assessments for Educator Licensure will be available beginning on February 10, 2014. Candidates seeking an initial practitioner license will be required to pass a developmental (pedagogy) area assessment and the appropriate content area assessments. Candidates seeking to add a content area to their license will be required to achieve passing scores on the Indiana CORE content area assessment(s) that match the license.
After May 31, 2014, if the appropriate Praxis II, in its entirety, has not been passed it may not be used to satisfy the content area assessment requirements for licensure.
Refer to the following document to find out which tests you need to take based on your licensure content area.
