How to Register for the Praxis Elementary Education Exam

By Carla C. Kirkland, Chan Cleveland

In order to take the Praxis Elementary Education exam, you’ll first need to register for it. You can find out how to register for any of the Praxis Subject Assessments by going to the Educational Testing Service (ETS) website at www.ets.org.

These assessments are offered during testing windows at more than 300 testing sites across the country. Refer to the ETS website for specific questions regarding testing windows and locations. Test-takers must register at least three days prior to their intended test date, and you must pay the testing fee online. At the time of this writing, the fee for either test is $120.

Before you register to take the Praxis, check with your local department of education to make sure you’re taking the right test. Don’t ask ETS or your mom or anyone else who isn’t in a position to grant you a teaching license; you may get wrong information, which can lead to wasted time and money.

After you register, completely review your entire admission ticket and its information to make sure all the content is correct.
