Praxis workshops scheduled at UAPB


The School of Education at the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff has begun a series of workshops for Praxis test readiness.

A Praxis test is one of a series of American teacher certification exams written and administered by the Educational Testing Service. Various Praxis tests are usually required before, during, and after teacher training courses in the U.S.

The objectives of the free workshop are to: learn how to properly prepare for the Praxis I tests; understand the Praxis I test content and concepts; and understand the registration procedures and costs for the Praxis I tests.

The next workshop will focus on the Praxis I Reading component and will be held from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Thursday in Dawson-Hicks Hall, room 106. The last workshop will focus on the Praxis I Mathematics component and will be held from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Wednesday, April 3 in Dawson-Hicks Hall, Learning Plus Lab Room 122.
