Help on Praxis II, Middle school Multiple Subjects

Hi, I am looking to take the Praxis II exam for middle school.

Do you know the difference between "Middle school content knowledge" and "Middle School Multiple subjects" tests? Because both the tests judge you on the same four subjects? Please suggest which one should i take.

Can anyone give me some material related to my test 5141 or 5146? I will be so-----so thankful. I really need it.


Thanks a ton!

The two work differently, and the chances are pretty good that New Jersey accepts one but not both. I'd recommend finding out which one works for New Jersey, and go from there.

As for study materials, you may find that some of the resources recommended for multiple subject exams are helpful. Try prowling the Multiple Subject Tests subforum here on A to Z.

I would call NJDOE/ go on their website or double check on the Praxis website. I know that they recently changed the test for K-5 to a multiple subject test it might be the same for middle school. Do not take any test until you have received the right information. For the k-5 it is the same material but if you fail one of the sections you can retake that section and not the whole test. I am thinking they did the same for middle school.

The Praxis Web site should also list test requirements for each state.

Exactly. I took the one that was content knowledge - pretty simple test, I think I got a 177 out of 200. I would have done better if I knew how to use a scientific calculator I'll need to take a class in that if I expect to teach middle school math!!!

Thanks.. it was a good idea to call up the NJDOE. I got to know a lot of stuff which was not very clearly mentioned on the website.

Now I know that in order to teach a middle school class, I first have to take the elementry level K - 5 multiple subjects exam.

Thanks for the advice

Welcome, tmnash! 0014 is a test for elementary-school educators, I believe: let me direct you to the Multiple Subject Tests subforum, and you can get there using the Forum Jump tool at the lower left of this page.
