Preparing for the ESL Praxis Exam

Use the PRAXIS study materials

I used the free practice test that the PRAXIS released, and I also purchased (20 bucks) the digital practice test that PRAXIS sells.  The digital test was 120 questions and timed.  I could repeat the test many times, and it provided an explanation for questions I missed.  The format was fairly similar to the real test and it was a definitely worth the money and time to help me prepare.

Also share the KYTESOL webpage with your staff. New staff for the 2015-16 school year may not be aware of the information and resources available through KYTESOL. Also please make the high school counselors aware of theESL/LEP Student Scholarship Opportunity that can be found on the webpage. The 2016 applications are already on the webpage.
