Multiple Measures

Multiple Measures is a pathway to certification for candidates who miss the required Praxis exam by a small margin, but who have completed all other requirements.

  • Anyone who has completed an educator preparation or an alternative routes program and has taken an applicable exam but has not been licensed or certified may be eligible.
  • Old exam scores may still be acceptable, even if taken years ago.
  • Determine if you are eligible for Multiple Measures.
