New content assessments will replace the Praxis beginning September 2, 2014. Information about those new assessments will be posted on this website as soon as it is made available.
Praxis exam scores will be honored until December 31, 2016. If you are not certified by the State of Missouri by December 31, 2016 you will be expected to pass the new content assessment(s) for your certification area in order to meet state certification requirements.
