The State of Minnesota has adopted the Praxis 1 as their examination to check basic skills in Reading, Writing, and Mathematics. The Pre-Professional-Skills Test (PPST) is becoming the most widely used, and Minnesota has chosen it as their test of choice.
Statute 122A.09b of the Minnesota Board of Education states, "The board must adopt rules requiring a person to successfully complete a skills examination in reading, writing, and mathematics as a requirement for initial teacher licensure." This legislation was enacted in 1995, and applies to all teachers seeking licensure in the State of Minnesota thereafter.
You can choose to take the Praxis I Test in either Paper-Based format (PPST), or Computer-Based format (CPPST). Minnesota has decided on the following score requirements. You are allowed to take the test one time per month up to 6 times per calendar year.
For Paper-Based (first code), Computer-Based (second code), here are the required scores:
10710 5710 PPST Reading 173
20720 5720 PPST Writing 172
10730 5730 PPST Mathematics 171
