The Praxis Series™ tests are taken by individuals entering the teaching profession as part of the certification process required by many states and professional licensing organizations.

The State of Maine requires any applicant for teacher
certification to have taken and passed both the Praxis I and the Praxis II tests. Applicants who have not graduated from a Maine
program approved for the education of kindergarten through Grade 12 teachers will also have to take the Praxis II PLT (or complete an approved alternative studies program).
