What’s on the Elementary Education: Content Knowledge Exam

The Elementary Education: Content Knowledge test is designed for prospective teachers of children in primary through upper elementary school grades. The 120 selected-response questions focus on four major subject areas: reading/language arts, mathematics, social studies, and science. Test questions are presented on the computer or in the test book by subject area. Each of the four content areas constitutes 25 percent of the test.

Taking the PRAXIS Elementary Education: Content Knowledge exam can be a daunting task.  Because its goal is to test your classroom readiness across the spectrum of content, it covers a lot of ground.  This breadth can make it hard to know how to prepare.  Luckily, if you understand how the test is organized and what it is testing, you will have no problem prepping for this test.  In order to cover everything needed to teach elementary education, the exam is broken into four subjects, which are broken into 3-6 competencies each.


Now that you have your test date set, you can turn to preparing for the exam itself. To begin, let’s look at the structure of the exam. The PRAXIS Elementary Education: Content Knowledge exam in its entirety consists of 120 selected-response questions: 30 questions in each subject.  You will have 2 hours to complete the test.  The test is administered via computer. Because of this, there can be a variety in the style of questions that are asked.  You should expect most questions to require you simply to click an oval next to the correct answer. However, there may be questions that utilize the technology more. They may ask you to zoom in on details in a graphic or picture, click boxes next to all that apply, click on check boxes, click on parts of a graphic or sentence, use a drag and drop feature, or select your answer from a drop-down menu.

Passing Scoring

Your score will be based on the number of questions you answer correctly. The passing score varies depending on the state you are testing for. See Registration and Testing section below for detailed information.

Registration and Testing

The first step in getting yourself ready for this exam is to complete the registration.  Some PRAXIS tests are offered continuously while others are offered during testing windows that occur several times a year. However, because of that, it is important to register as soon as possible to make sure you get the date and location you want.  It is also a good idea to register early, so that you leave enough time for yourself to prepare.

Step 1: Make Sure You Can Test

Check your state testing requirements to see which test(s) are required for licensure in your state.

Step 2: Register

Before you register:

  • Review the policies in The Praxis® Information Bulletin (PDF)
  • Check your state testing requirements to see which test(s) are required for licensure in your state.
  • See Test Fees for fees and acceptable forms of payment.
  • If you require accommodations for disabilities or health-related needs, you must register through ETS Disability Services. Allow at least six weeks for the review process. See Disability Accommodations.

Step 3: Test Day Arrival and What to Bring

Before you even arrive at the test center, there are a number of important things you should do:

  • Verify your test location — Test locations sometimes change. Be sure to confirm your location before test day by logging into your MyPraxis® account.
  • Print your admission ticket — Log in to your My Praxis account, print a copy of your admission ticket and bring it with you to the test center.
  • Assemble your identification (ID) documents — See ID requirementsto be sure your documents will be accepted. You will not be admitted to the test without the correct documents.
  • Review the list of important items to bring to your test center.
  • Dress appropriately — Testing room conditions vary. Dress in layers to ensure you are ready for any room temperature.
  • Review test center procedures and regulations
  • Make sure to arrive on time — Please plan to arrive at the test center at least 30 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment to allow time for check-in.
  • Plan to be at the test center for longer than the test duration — Your test appointment includes 30 extra minutes prior to beginning the test to complete tutorials that will help familiarize you with the testing process.

Step 4: Taking the Test

By now, you should be familiar with what to expect on the exam. All that is left to do is complete it, but that may not be as simple as it sounds once the test is in front of you.

If you feel anxious, remember 7 Reasons People Fail Their Certification Exam. If you have prepared using these tips and 240Tutoring’s study guide, you will have:

  • Learned the content
  • Reviewed testing strategies
  • Learned how to break down questions and answer choices
  • Learned how to write a constructed response
  • Developed strategies for reducing test anxiety

Throughout the test, remember what you have learned, maintain a steady pace, and keep calm!

Step 5: Test Scores

Some, but not all, Praxis® tests offer you an opportunity to view unofficial scores at the end of your testing session. If an unofficial score is not provided for your test, it means that further analysis must be conducted before scoring can be completed. This does not indicate a problem with the administration of your test and will not result in a delay in reporting your official score. Test centers cannot provide printed copies of score reports.

At the end of the test session, but before reviewing the unofficial score information, the computer gives you the option to report or cancel your score. Once you have chosen to report the score, it cannot be canceled. If you cancel your score, it will not be reported and it cannot be reinstated on your record. You also will not receive a refund if you choose to cancel your score.

Official Score Reports

For tests that are offered continuously, official scores are available online 10–16 business days after your test date. For tests that are offered during testing windows, scores are available online 10–16 business days after thetesting window closes, regardless of the specific date on which you tested within that window. For more information on score reporting dates and accessing scores, see Getting Your Praxis Scores.

Sending Your Scores

You received your score report. What does it all mean? For more detailed information, read Understanding Your Scores.

State Testing Requirements

Each state and licensing organization determines its own certification andPraxis passing score requirements. For more information about certification requirements, visit the state requirements section.

Retake Policy

If you feel you did not perform to your potential, you may retake a Praxistest once every 21 days, not including your initial test date. (Note: If you take a combined test, such as the Elementary Education: Multiple Subjects Test or the PA Grades 4–8 Core Assessment, you cannot retake a subtest until after the 21-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.
