Praxis II Exams for Certification


The Praxis II assessments are separate from the Praxis I Core Academic Skills exams used for admission to teacher education programs.

Praxis II assessments are not required for graduation from NKU. Instead, they prepare students for initial certification in Kentucky. These exams assess content area knowledge and pedagogy knowledge. The particular tests required vary by major. Most students  take one Principles of Learning and Teaching (PLT) exam and additional exams for each of their content areas.
