About the Praxis Series
Praxis is Educational Testing Service���s (ETS) shorthand for Professional Assessments for Beginning Teachers. The Praxis Series is a group of teacher licensing tests that ETS developed in concert with states across the nation. There are three categories of tests in the series: Praxis I, Praxis II and Praxis III. Praxis I includes the paper-based Pre-Professional Skills Tests (PPST) and the Praxis I Computer-Based Tests (CBT). Both versions cover essentially the same subject matter. These exams measure reading, mathematics, and writing skills and are often a requirement for admission to a teacher education program
Praxis II embraces Subject Assessment/Specialty Area Tests, including the Praxis II Elementary Education series, of which the Praxis II 0011/5011 exam is a part. The Praxis II examinations cover the subject matter that students typically study in teacher education courses—such content as human growth and development, school curriculum, methods of teaching, and other professional development courses. In most teacher-training programs, students take these tests after having completed their classroom training, the course work, and practicum. Praxis III is different from the multiple-choice and essay tests typically used for assessment purposes. With this assessment, ETS-trained observers evaluate an instructor���s performance in the classroom, using nationally validated criteria. The observers may videotape the lesson, and other teaching experts may critique the resulting tapes
The Praxis II 0011/5011 covers the content areas of reading and language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies, arts and physical education and general information about curriculum and instruction
Who Takes the Test?
Most people who take the Praxis II 0011/5011 are seeking initial licensure. You should check with your state���s education agency to determine which Praxis examination(s) you should take; the ETS Praxis website ( and registration bulletin may also help you determine the test(s) you need to take for certification
You should also consult your education program for its own test requirements. Remember that colleges and universities often require Praxis examinations for entry into programs, for graduation, and for the completion of a teacher certification program. These requirements may differ from the baseline requirements the state has for teacher certification. You will need to meet both sets of requirements
When Should I Take the Test?
The Praxis II 0011/5011 is a test for those who have completed or almost completed their teacher education programs. Each state establishes its own requirements for certification; some states specify the passing of other tests. Some states may require the test for initial certification; other states may require the test for beginning teachers during their first months on the job. Generally, each college and university establishes its own requirements for program admission and for graduation. Some colleges and universities require certain tests for graduation and/or for completion of a teacher education program. Check with your college and the state teacher certification agency for details
When and Where Can I Take the Test?
ETS offers the Praxis 0011/5011 seven times a year at a number of locations across the nation. The usual testing day is Saturday, but examinees may request an administration on an alternate day if a conflict—such as a religious obligation—exists

Is There a Registration Fee?

How to Use This Book
What Do I Study First?
Read over REA���s subject reviews and suggestions for test taking. Studying the reviews thoroughly will reinforce the basic skills you will need to do well on the exam. Make sure to do the practice questions in this book so that you will be familiar with the format and procedures involved with taking the actual test
When Should I Start Studying?
It is never too early to start studying; the earlier you begin, the more time you will have to sharpen your skills. Do not procrastinate! Cramming is not an effective way to study because it does not allow you the time needed to learn the test material
About Computer-Based Testing
The test numbered 5011 is offered only on computer at flexible times and locations throughout the year. Minimal computer and typing skills are required to complete the computer-based tests. You need to be comfortable with a Windows environment, using a mouse (including clicking, double-clicking, dragging, and scrolling), and typing at a rate that will allow you to complete the assignment in the allotted time (approximately 30 words per minute). In computer-based testing, examinees complete the tests by selecting answers on-screen to multiple-choice questions
Score Reporting
When Will I Receive My Examinee Score Report and in What Form Will It Be?
ETS mails test-score reports six weeks after the test date. There is an exception for computer-based tests and for the Praxis I examinations. Score reports will list your current score and the highest score you have earned on each test you have taken over the last 10 years
Along with your score report, ETS will provide you with a booklet that offers details on your scores. For each test date, you may request that ETS send a copy of your scores to as many as three score recipients, provided that each institution or agency is eligible to receive the scores
Studying for the Praxis II 0011/5011
It is critical to your success that you study effectively. Throughout this guide you will find Praxis Pointers that will give you tips for successful test taking. The following are a few tips to help get you going
Choose a time and place for studying that works best for you. Some people set aside a certain number of hours every morning to study; others may choose to study at night before retiring. Only you know what is most effective for you
Use your time wisely and be consistent. Work out a study routine and stick to it; don���t let your personal schedule interfere. Remember, seven weeks of studying, is a modest investment to put you on your chosen path
Don���t cram the night before the test. You may have heard many amazing tales about effective cramming, but don���t kid yourself: most of them are false, and the rest are about exceptional people who, by definition, aren���t like most of us
When you take the practice tests, try to make your testing conditions as much like the actual test as possible. Turn off your television, radio, and telephone. Sit down at a quiet table free from distraction
As you complete each practice test, score your test and thoroughly review the explanations to the questions you answered incorrectly
Take notes on material you will want to go over again or research further
Keep track of your scores. By doing so, you will be able to gauge your progress and discover your strengths and weaknesses. You should carefully study the material relevant to your areas of difficulty. This will build your test-taking skills and your confidence!
