Frequently Asked Questions - new FAQ coming soon pending changes being made at the state level.
The Office of Educator Licensing and the Office of Educator Preparation Programs and P-12 Partnerships have been working with both the current and incoming licensure test vendors to provide an earlier transition between the Pearson CORE and the Educational Testing Service (ETS) Praxis test programs than the previously planned date of September 1, 2021.
IDOE is pleased to announce that many of the approved Praxis content and pedagogy licensure tests approved for use in Indiana will be available for early administration starting July 1, 2021. Registration and preparation materials, including one free interactive practice test per test area, will be open and available in mid-May. More details about how to access the registration site and preparation materials will be provided later this spring.
During the transition period between July 1 and August 31, both the CORE licensure tests and many--but not all--of the Praxis tests will be available in parallel. This allows candidates who are trying to finish up their CORE tests to do so before August 31, or candidates may elect to begin taking the Praxis tests required for their licensure. Licenses based on passing the required Praxis tests and Indiana cut scores may be issued beginning July 1.
The Office of Educator Licensing will honor most CORE tests passed by August 31 even if the test taker does not apply for licensure until a later date. However, there are five content areas that currently require multiple CORE content tests that have special test transition requirements. These requirements can be found in an alert box on this page: https://www.doe.in.gov/licensing/educator-testing
Here you will find a list of Indiana's licensure content and pedagogy areas, the corresponding Praxis tests, and Indiana's Praxis cut scores. The tests highlighted in green will be available starting July 1. Tests not highlighted will have cut scores and will be available on September 1, unless a later date is noted.
