    On praxis 5002, I earned a raw score of 130. The passing score is 157
    Should I expect the raw score to be the same as the final?

    As I've explained elsewhere, this 130 looks not like a raw score (which is actual number of points earned), but like an unofficial scaled score - and, yes, I'm afraid it's almost certain to be the same as the final scaled score. The only likely exception is if a number of questions were some of Praxis's newer types - matching questions, drag-and-drop questions, that sort of thing where one numbered question turns out to have two or more components each of which can be scored on its own. I don't recall 5002 offhand, so I don't remember whether it has questions like that.

    An A to Z pro tip: duplicate threads on the same topic at the same time by the same member are frowned upon. (A bit of terminology: You and I are communicating in a thread. This thread, as I type, consists of two posts: your original post and my response.) The site owner believes that spreading one discussion among several threads dilutes the discussion; I agree. The two threads you launched about two minutes apart have been merged into this one. And now you know.

    Yes, 5002 included those type of questions. Thanks for the tip

    Hm. In that case, take a deep breath and wait for your official results. If you feel the need to get a retake date scheduled right now, please check the test fee refund policies before paying.
