    Hi! I took the FACS Praxis today and am confused about my scores. On the screen it showed total: 162 and raw score was 78 if I added correctly. I don’t see much about FACS on the forum but was hoping I could get some insight from someone. I’m in VA and need 153 to pass. Thank you!

    I'll put it this way: let me offer unofficial congratulations.

    If your raw score was 78, 162 is almost certainly a scaled score, and you seem to have taken a version of 5122 for which Praxis has already established the raw-to-scaled mapping.

    Your official score report, when it arrives, will show the distribution of your 78 raw points among the major domains (subject areas) of the test and will give you some idea how well you did in each domain compared to other test takers.

    Confirm the good news, please, when your score report arrives, and I'll make my congratulations official.

    Thank you so much for replying and explaining. The scores give me a headache trying to figure it out! I will definitely update once I receive my scores.

    Just in case anyone else takes the test... I used the test prep provided by ETS and also bought the $19.99 interactive practice test to study. There were only a handful of questions from the test prep and interactive test that had any similarity to the actual test! That really threw me for a loop. So it did not help much at all.

    Update...I just got my score and I passed!!!

    162 was what popped up on the screen as my score after I was done with my test. My official score report it has 162 listed as my score so I guess it was accurate and already scored right away. I needed a 153 to pass.

    I'm delighted to make my congratulations official! Well done! Experience suggests that unofficial scaled scores, when they're issued, tend to be reliable.

    I am also expressing frustration on receiving a NS score on FACS Praxis 5122. I added up my section scores, and I answered 95/120 correctly. After reading this forum, should I assume that I passed (153 being the scaled score for passing in PA)?

    Welcome to A to Z, frenchteacher11. You seem to have been assigned a version of 5122 that's new enough that Praxis is still collecting information on which to determine the mapping of raw scores to scaled scores. If this is a typical Praxis exam, it includes "pretest" questions - questions that are being field-tested for future versions of the test and thus are counted neither for nor against you; evidence indicates that the raw section scores that are displayed also exclude those questions, so your total raw score is 95 out of a number that's no greater than 105 and is likely to be less. If you haven't passed this thing, and in handsome style, I will be shocked.

    I took 5122 last week too. I was so hoping to see an unofficial scaled score on my screen! I got 98 raw score. Now I guess I am waiting until 7/7 for my results. Good luck to you! Hope we both get good news soon! I need a 153 also.

    @Ldunston I am signing up to take it as well, so if you find anything to study please pass it along. I have found some quizlets on google by just typing in quizlets for praxis 5122. I took the middle school eng. 5047 and missed by 6 pts. My test was extremely hard. I am hoping this one will not be the same. If anyone who has taken can give me their opinion on the difficulty of this test I would be grateful.

    How did you do on your test? I took 5122 on June 7th. The score the computer gave me was 163, I need a 153 to pass. I guess I passed???? WHY DOES IT TAKE SO LONG TO GET OFFICIAL SCORES?

    I took it June 6th, I scored 160 I needed 161! It really stinks. I am praying for 1pt to show up on my official score. I know it's possible BUT rarely happens. I am holding on to POSSIBLE!
    If not I am going to sign up to take it again July 30th. Congratulations to you, I wish I only needed a 153 to pass. So very happy for you though. I have never been a great test-taker, but at age 41 and 19 years of family life and 17 yrs of teaching experience you would think I could pass! GEEZ!

    @amy2077 on your other tests, did the score appear on the exact release date?
