What’s on the PRAXIS Middle School: Science exam?
The Middle School Science test is designed to measure the knowledge and competencies necessary for a beginning teacher of middle school science. Examinees have typically completed or nearly completed a bachelor’s degree program with appropriate coursework in science and education. The 125 selected-response questions include concepts, terms, phenomena, methods, applications, data analysis, and problem-solving in science, and include an understanding of the impact of science and technology on the environment and human affairs. This also includes the ability to integrate basic topics from chemistry, physics, life science, and Earth and space science, which are typically covered in introductory college-level courses in these disciplines, although some questions of a more advanced nature are included, because secondary school teachers must understand the subject matter from a more advanced viewpoint than that presented to their students.
