One of two Praxis scores

May 18, 2010

I told my principal that if I didn’t pass the Praxis content knowledge test, I wouldn’t take it again.  I felt like I did as well as I would ever do.  In order to pass, I needed to score 157 out of a possible score range from 100-200.  (Yeah, weird system.)  Well, my score report was available online today.

I was right, I did as well as I would ever do.  I scored 200.  *blink-blink*  Yep, the math teacher scored 200 on the English content knowledge test.

I didn’t get everything right, as the score suggests.  I missed 9 out of 120 questions.  Not shabby.  Most were “Literature and Understanding” questions, a very wide category with over half the questions.  I did ace all the “Language and Linguistics” questions.  I missed two “Composition and Rhetoric” questions.

Am I happy?  Enough, I guess.  I sill have to wait a week or so for my pedagogy test score, the one I was worried about.  I’m a little less worried now, but only a little.  We’ll see how it goes.  But so far, so good.

    Woohoo! Missing just 9 out of 120? That’s pretty awesome. Congrats! Hope the second half comes out as well 🙂

    Victory! You beat the test by cramming, too. You should write a book (“How I Did It” or something).

    Smarties always prosper.
