These tests measure basic skills in reading, writing and mathematics. In addition to licensure, these tests are often used to qualify candidates for entry into a teacher education program. 

Praxis II Subject Assessments 

These tests measure subject-specific content knowledge, as well as general and subject-specific teaching skills, that you need for beginning teaching.
