    We don't know yet, keisha: sounds like you ended up with a new version of the test for which Praxis is still working out the mapping between raw and scaled scores. I will say, though, that if you didn't pass, you'll have come pretty close.

    Hello, I am taking the Praxis 5022 (Early Childhood: Content Knowledge) and I've been taking practice exams. I'm trying to figure out how I am doing on the practice exams. In Oklahoma, I need a 155 to pass. I've scored a 97/120. How can I figure out my score?

    Hello..I took the praxis Biology yesterday. I thought I did well but the raw score only added to 100 (out of 150 questions). Thats 2/3rd...But I am still freaking out. Did anyone else get a similar score and do you know your scaled score?

    That's a pretty good raw score; I think you're on track to earn your 155. If that's a practice test produced by Praxis, there might be a table somewhere to convert the score from raw to scaled... maybe. But the conversion from a raw score to a scaled score on any teacher test depends on the specific version of the test that one has taken. With that said, bear in mind that the 155 you need is on a scale from 100 to 200: sketch out a number line that goes from 100 to 200 and locate 155 on it, and you'll see that that isn't so spectacular a score. In contrast, your 97/120 puts you above 75%, and that's before "non-scoring" questions are subtracted.

    Hello! I'm a mid-career writer and editor aspiring to teach. My BA is in Sociology. I just took the PRAXIS 5038 (ELA) and my raw score was 85 out of 130. I need a scaled score of 167 in Colorado to pass. I almost cried because I thought my score seemed pretty low. After reading some of the threads here, it seems like I may have passed. ETS releases official scores at the end of the month. Any encouragement from the troops? Thanks!! It is so hard to wait.

    Hey, I just took the Mathematics: CK (5161) PRAXIS in a computer based exam. When I finished it said "My Score: 200" and had 2 raw scores - one of "Discrete Math: 33" and one of "Geometry: 15." Does this mean I got a 200 on it, or does it mean that the test was out of 200? If it's the latter, what do you think my score was?

    Praxis tests are generally scored on a scale from 100 to 200. CK or Content Knowledge tests tend to be straight-ahead multiple choice, and it tends to be the case that some questions don't count either for or against the test taker because they're being road-tested for inclusion in future exams. 5161 has 60 questions total. You seem to have gotten right the 48 of them that count. Congratulations: you've aced this thing.

    Has anyone taken the Praxis gifted test? Are there internet resources to help pass?

    Can anyone tell me how to calculate final score from a raw score. I got a 72 out of 130 on Praxis for Health and PE and am trying to get an idea of what that means for my final score!?!

    "How to calculate", no: scaled scores exist because questions inevitably vary in difficulty, so a raw score of 72 on one version of the health-and-PE exam won't necessarily translate to quite the same scaled score as does a raw score of 72 on a different version.

    "How to approximate", maybe. 72/130 is a bit over 55%, which isn't very promising. But most Praxis exams include some questions that aren't counted in the final official score (because the questions are being field-tested for use in future tests). If your test had 130 questions, and if the Study Companion indicates that some questions may not count, I'd venture that 10% to 15% might not count. 72/110 is still less than 66.7%, though.

    Thank you. I just realized it was an 82/130 that I got correct so I'm hopeful this will get me a passing score

    That's rather more promising, yes.

    Can anyone give me insight on whether I earned at least a 160 for the Praxis Math 5161? I just took the test on June 4 and the score said no score with a raw score of 44. Is that promising? I don't think the testing window closes until June 11, but I'm so impatient!

    I took the Praxis 2: Teaching Students with Learning Disabilities today and I received a NO SCORE Screen at the end. I didn't see a raw score. The only thing I saw were the numbers of questions in each category I answered correctly. Was that the raw score? If so, the numbers added up to 82..I need a passing score of 151..any thoughts? Am I close?

    Yes, that 82 is your total raw score, at one point per correct answer. The Study Companion for 5838 indicates that there are 120 multiple choice questions total and that some questions may not be counted either for or against you; evidence from other posts on other tests strongly suggests that questions that don't count aren't included in the onscreen raw score. Your raw score is therefore not 82 out of 120 but 82 out of a lower number. Exactly how raw scores map onto scaled scores is a bit of a mystery, but the standard Praxis scale runs from 100 to 200: think about where 151 would be on that scale. In short, I won't guarantee that you passed, but it will be a bit of a shock if you didn't.
