The Iowa Praxis exams are designed to assess subject matter knowledge and other competencies for individuals planning a career in teaching.  Most prospective teachers are required to pass a Praxis Principles of Learning and Teaching (PLT) exam for the specific grade levels they plan to teach.  The PLT assesses the candidate's pedagogy skills.

Before achieving licensure, Iowa also requires many candidates to pass one or more Praxis II exams.  The specific Praxis II exam that a candidate must take depends on the subject and grade-level that candidate plans to teach.  For example, those planning to teach elementary school or special education typically must pass exams such as Praxis Elementary Education: Content Knowledge, which cover a broad range of subjects, while those planning to teach a specific subject at the secondary school level must pass a Praxis single subject exam.

Many Iowa Praxis exams are offered via paper-based testing held on specific test dates, as well as via computer-based testing, which may be scheduled by appointment year-round.  For more info on Praxis test dates and advice on choosing the best date for you, please click below...
