PRAXIS Exams Information

The following information is for candidates that need to take either the Core Academic Skills for Educators (Core) Tests or any of the Praxis II Series exams. ETS Tennessee Praxis Homepage - This site offers a list of required exams, a store for purchasing test prep, a calendar of test dates & times, online registration for your exams and more. Candidates registering for Praxis exams need to be sure to enter the following codes when indicating where scores will be sent:

    University of Memphis:  1459                                                                 Department of Education of Tennessee:  8190

Also, it is important for candidates to enter their social security number on the registration form and the examination form. If candidates fail to do so, their scores will not be identifiable by the College of Education or the State Department of Education for licensure purposes. Educational Testing Service charges a fee to reissue scores with Social Security Numbers.

Studying Resources

Although ETS does offer several test prep e-books and modules for purchase, there are study resources available to University of Memphis students through the library's database search system. Go to the University of Memphis' Library's webpage and click on the "Databases" tab. Then, type in "Learning Express Library" in the search box. Click on the database link on the next page. Create an individual account – username and password – so you can download the tests and ebooks. After that, you will log in and go directly to the tests. Do the same for other types of tests – GRE, etc.

Or – go to Tennessee Electronic Library and click on "Test Prep." Then, click on "Learning Express Library" and do the same as above. This link is open to the public – free to anyone in Tennessee or to our students who register while in the state.

If you are having difficulty with the aforementioned library resources, please email Gail Perkins Barton or by phone at 901.678.8223.
