Praxis® Core Academic Skills for Educators (Core) Tests measure academic skills in reading, writing, and mathematics, while the Praxis II focuses on subject knowledge.

These tests were designed to provide comprehensive assessments that measure the skills and content knowledge of candidates entering teacher preparation programs. 

Iowa Test Requirements

Each state has its own requirements for teacher licensure and certification. In addition, the Iowa Legislature requires the Praxis™ Core Academic Skills for Educators tests for admission into the teacher education program. Students may receive information about the test, registration forms, test-taking assistance, and remediation in the Pathways Center.
