Praxis I & Praxis II Study Books Loan

Our office no longer have the Praxis books available for one-month loans.  You may now check out Praxis study books at the UWM Curriculum Library, located in the campus library (second floor, east wing). You must be a current UWM student in good standing with a valid UWM Identification Card.

The books are now 7-day reserve items.  

Books are also available through Milwaukee County Public Libraries with a valid library card.


Praxis I Computer-Based Practice: PLATO

You can practice for the Praxis I Math, Reading, and Writing exam sections via computer online by using the PLATO Computer Simulated Test System.

Praxis I Computer-Based Testing Experience: Video

To help candidates understand what will happen when they visit a Prometric Testing Center and begin to test online, ETS has launched an online video that will walk them through their entire computer delivered testing experience.  View the video at http://www.ets.org/ Media/Tests/PRAXIS/FlashPrometric/hesa.html


Test Retake Policy — Praxis I & II™ Tests

Computer-Delivered Tests

You may only take each Praxis™ computer-delivered test once every 30 consecutive days, not including the day of your test. If you wish to retest, you must select a test date that is more than 30 days after your previous test date. (Note: if you take the combined PPST test, you cannot take an individual PPST test until after the 30-day period.) This applies even if you canceled your scores on a test taken previously. If you violate this restriction, the scores from your retest will not be reported and your test fees will not be refunded.


Paper-Delivered Tests

ETS does not limit the number of times you can retake a paper-delivered Praxis test; however, some states, associations, and institutions may limit the number of times you can retest. Contact your state or licensing agency to confirm their retest policy.
