Indiana Core Assessment Tests: Elementary

Content Area and Developmental Tests

Each applicant for an original teaching license must pass the content and pedagogy areas for their license major. It is recommended that all license exam requirements be completed prior to the beginning of the student’s last semester before graduation and/or completion of the last license course requirement. It may require more than one test session to complete all the tests required.

Notice:  Because the State of Indiana is in a testing transition, up until May 31st, 2014, students can choose either testing Option 1 or Option 2 below in fulfilling the appropriate Decision Point 4 testing requirements. Effective June 1st, 2014 ONLY Option 1 will be available to students.  Should a student choose Option 2 during this transition, the content test (ETS Praxis II) must be passed by May 31st, 2014.  If all Praxis II tests are not passed by May 31, 2014, students must take ALL the required Pearson Content Tests. The pedagogy exam (Pearson) can be passed at any time.
