PRAXIS II ® PLT and Subject Assessments
The Kansas State Department of Education (KSDE) requires two Praxis II ® tests for a Kansas Teaching License:
• A pedagogy test, the Principles of Learning and Teaching (PLT)
• A content test for each area you are endorsed. These tests are part of the Praxis II ® tests. These tests are not required for Graduation, but are required for your Teaching License. Therefore we recommend that you take these exams the semester prior to student teaching or the semester prior to graduation.
