California Praxis 1 and CBEST Information
The Praxis I Test is not currently required in the state of California, but a Basic Skills Test is required. Under the law in number 3 below, a Basic Skills Test that is required by another state is acceptable, so if you have taken the Praxis I your test scores will be accepted. The following are options for the Teacher Entrance examinations of the Basic Skills Requirement:

The Title 5 Regulations and Education Code for the state of California states that in order to get your credentials, certificate, or your permit to teach in the public schools of California, you must verify a proficiency in a BASIC SKILLS test, before the state will issue a credential, certificate, or permit. Colleges may require the basic skills requirement before you can even enroll in a teaching program. The Praxis I is a basic skills test.

Each school district can choose to require the BASIC SKILLS test as a condition of employment, so you should check with the school district in which you are considering being employed at to understand the requirements of that specific district.

When the Senate Bill 1209 was passed, more options of the basic skills requirement became available.

OPTIONS FOR MEETING THE BASIC SKILLS REQUIREMENT

Individuals may satisfy the basic skills requirement by one of the following methods:

1. Pass the CBEST
Individuals only need to pass the CBEST once; CBEST passing scores remain valid indefinitely for all credential and
employment purposes. To pass the CBEST, one must obtain a minimum scaled score of 41 in each of the three sections—
reading, writing, and mathematics. However, a section score as low as 37 is acceptable if the total scaled score is at least
123. Any or all sections of the CBEST can be repeated as many times as necessary to obtain a passing score, but the full
registration fee is charged for each test administration.
Additional information and instructions for test registration and administration processes may be obtained by contacting
the CBEST program.
