Praxis II Principles of Learning and Teaching (PLT) Tests
The Praxis II Principles of Learning and Teaching (PLT) test is required of all educators to complete EYE requirements and qualify for a Level 2 license. The test is designed to assess a beginning educator’s pedagogical knowledge. It assesses an educator’s understanding of such areas as human growth and development, classroom management, instructional design and delivery techniques, and evaluation and assessment. The test uses a case study approach and features constructed-response and multiple-choice items.
Level 1 Educators must pass the PLT test with a score of 160 or greater in order to apply for a Level 2 License. Educators who do not achieve a passing score may retake the test within the three-year duration of the Level 1 license. Registration information and current test fee information can be found at the Educational Testing Services (ETS) website, www.ets.org/praxis. ETS will forward scores to the Utah State Office of Education upon the educator’s request. Please allow 6-8 weeks to receive test results.
