    Sorry for the delay but YES!!! I passed!
    I really felt that my scores were not enough but yes... the unofficial score they gave me as soon as i finished my test was the same as the official!

    I took 5018 on last Thursday and received a score of *153. This is the breakdown:
    Reading: 30
    Math: 18
    SS: 14
    Science: 12
    =74
    I guess I'm confused on how they are scoring this test. In a previous post I saw where someone received that same score and passed. Can someone help me understand this. I am in Louisiana.

    Hugs, DezMatthews.

    5018 exists in more than one version. Test versions differ in difficulty, simply because it's darned hard to write even two questions that are exactly equal in difficulty, let alone several test versions' worth of questions. That being the case, a raw score of 74 on one version of 5018 can't really be directly compared to a raw score of 74 on a different version. Scaled scores adjust for those differences in difficulty, with the result that a scaled score of 153 on ANY version of 5018 reflects the same level of performance.

    Does anyone know if or when they are going to do away with Praxis Exam 5018?

    This being a Praxis test that isn't state-specific, a better question is whether a state in which you're interested is going to stop using it. And for that, I shrug: no idea.
