What is Praxis II?
The Praxis II assessments measure subject-specific skills and content knowledge. Listed below are the subject areas the State is currently requiring Praxis II scores for certification. PSU recommends that those students seeking New Hampshire certification take these tests just prior to student teaching or in their senior year. Please submit a copy of your Praxis II scores to the New Hampshire Department of Education (R7660) and to Plymouth State University (R3690).
Students planning to apply for out-of-state certification should obtain assessment testing requirements for that particular state by contacting the State Department of Education in that state.
Nonstandard testing accommodations for test takers with disabilities, or whose primary language is not English, are available for those who meet Educational Testing Service (ETS) requirements.
Please note that the registration deadline for each test is about 30 days prior to the test date. Check www.ets.org/praxis for the exact deadline dates.
