Praxis Core Format

The Praxis Core format consists of reading, mathematics, and writing. Since you can schedule which parts of the exam you wish to take, the format varies between test takers.

Answer: 180 minutes (written), 225 minutes (computer)

Question 2: How do I prepare for the computer version format on the PRAXIS?

Answer: Allow each question a reasonable amount of time and thought. Treat each question with the same level of difficulty. Don’t be scared if questions are getting “easier,” or getting harder.

Question 3: What is the maximum amount of time that I could spend on each question on the computer version of the PRAXIS?
