Beginning September 1, 2014, ETS will no longer offer the current Praxis I (PPST). ETS is replacing it with the Praxis Core Academic Skills for Educators Test.
- The new scores for the Praxis Core are: Reading 156; writing 162, Mathematics 150
- Previous passing PPST scores will be recognized, if they are on file at the GCEC by September 1, 2014. (If you have two passing scores on file, then you need to only take one of the new tests – the old passing scores count. This does not mean that the old failing scores will be lowered because of the new Core passing scores. They are different tests.)
- Beginning September 1, 2014, there will no longer be a composite score. Each test will have a passing score. The current PPST composite score rule will be honored, if all scores are on file with GCEC by September 1, 2014. After that, you will need passing scores on each test, whether using the new test or a combination of the new and old.
