- According to the Educational Testing Service, PRAXIS II tests are designed to assess a potential teacher's knowledge of her subjects, as well as teaching competence. In the State of Delaware, the PRAXIS II test is required for most individuals who want to become licensed teachers. However, because PRAXIS II requirements differ from state to state, it's important that you're familiar with them before you register for the test.
- The Educational Testing Service (ETS), the assessment body that gives the PRAXIS II, requires that test takers register before the day of the test. According to the Delaware Department of Education, Delaware has not approved all PRAXIS II tests, and there is more than one test in some areas, so you must be sure you are registering for the correct test by confirming the test you will be taking with the Delaware Department of Education or the university where you are pursuing a degree to become a teacher.
- Each PRAXIS II test is different, but each has a minimum score that is designated as passing for a Delaware teaching license. If you do not achieve the minimum score, you will be required to take the test again. To see a chart of minimum scores, you can visit ETS's web site.
- When registering for the PRAXIS II, you will have the option to have your scores sent to educational institutions. According to the University of Delaware, three of those score sheets are sent at no additional cost. You must always send official scores to request your Delaware teaching license. Give the name of your college when taking the test so that this institution can arrange for your license.
