CANDIDATES' PERFORMANCE ON NATIONAL EXAMINATIONS

The Praxis exams, administered by the Educational Testing Service (ETS), are taken by individuals entering the teaching profession as part of the certification requirements by many states and professional licensing organizations. Additionally, the overall average performance of candidates taking the edTPA, a performance-based assessment administered by Pearson, was 38.73.
