The state of Arizona requires students to pass a Basic Skills Test in order to join an educator preparation program. This test assesses the basic skills of the student applying for an education program. The areas that must be tested are Mathematics, Reading Comprehension, and Writing. This Basic Skills Test is a part of AEPA (Arizona Education Proficiency Assessments), and is very similar to the PRAXIS 1. Let us help you prepare for your Basic Skills Test, with our Praxis 1 practice tests.

Any student seeking initial teacher licensure in a bachelor's program must pass the required tests for the state that student lives in. This requirement can be finished either before or after admission to the Foundations of Teaching subject area once you are established in your WGU (Western Governors University) program of choice.
Alabama, Arizona, Florida, Massachusetts, New York and Washington, allows you to take either the state-specific test or the Praxis I Pre-Professional-Skills-Test (PPST).
