    lynteach, please catalogue the raw-to-scaled correlations you've seen so far. (I don't have time right now: I have to go bail someone elsewhere out of the swamp.)

    Hi Everyone,
    I just took the Praxis 5003 math section and got a raw score of 25. Is this a passing score? Please help!!

    No typo. LOL! I had to take them both. 5017 is Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment. The scores above were from my 5018 Content Knowledge, so we are talking the same test! I take 5203, Teaching Reading on Monday!

    Hi everybody, I've read through all this and feel a lot more confident about my score, I'm glad this forum was here! Just took the test April 7, raw score of 108, don't know my scaled score yet.

    But I saw a lot of people struggling with the concepts and saying they had a hard time studying. I just wanted to pass along that I was in the same boat, but I found a YouTube series called Crash Course that has tons of videos on US History, World History, Biology, Chemistry, etc... I binged watched like 40 hours of them and they ABSOLUTELY helped me pass the test, some of the questions I got I knew solely from watching these videos. Just thought I'd pass along my success to others and see if it could help anyone else prepare! :)

    Is there any hope for me? Praxis II 5018 scores: 35, 34, 15, 17. Took the test out of 140 questions. These scores on popped up at the end of the test but I don't know if I passed or not.

    I'd be willing to bet you passed. My scores were 36, 26, 18 and 18. I ended up with a 181

    I got a 78 raw score on my second try. Someone please tell me there is hope? I need a 163 as well. Nothing seems to help me, this test is a beast!

    Well based on your score I think now there might be hope for me. I got a 78 raw and need a 163. The scoring makes no sense! They are all different. I have heard you need an 83 to pass.

    Fingers crossed and prayers up that our test is only out of 118 too! I think that's the only way I would possibly pass. I'm going nuts and it has only been 1 day. 2 and a half more weeks to wait.

    Are you guys currently waiting on scores? I'm panicking because I either barely passed or just missed it!

    I took both 5018 Content Knowledge and 5017, Curriculum Instruction and Assessment on April 7, and I just took 5023 Teaching Reading yesterday, so I am still waiting on scores. Definitely going to be a long 3 weeks!

    How was the reading one? Are they all as hard as 5018?

    In my opinion, 5018 is the beast because I am weaker in math and my particular version, I felt, had a lot of higher level math....plus the content areas are so vast. 5017 was not too bad and I thought 5203 was the easiest, but Reading is kind of my thing. I don't think I am breaking confidentiality by saying that there are essay questions on that one though addressing scenarios. I just hope we get 5018 behind us!

    Me too, this was try 2 for me and I'm over it! I also tried 5017 and didn't pass so I'm hoping for the best on reading and that one again. I'm praying I passed 5018. It's going to be a close one. I only got a 78.

    That's nothing to be ashamed of. The first time I took it I got a 73 raw/151 scaled. I just took it again and only got a 78. I'm praying for a 163! What did you get for scale and how many questions was it out of?
    Not

    My score was one point less than you and if our test ends up being out of 118 I think we might have squeaked by. Prayers up!

    I just took the 5018 and it was nothing like the interactive practice tests on ETS. I have to have a 157 and got a raw score of 80 when I added my total of the 4 sections. I am praying I passed!!!

    You should be fine. I got a 78 and am probably borderline. I need a 163!

    I got an 85 and I need 163 to pass. I am hoping this is good enough. It seems like it is from everything I have read, but I am still nervous until I get the results.

    According to what I have read, if our test us out of 118 my 78 will end up a 163 so either way you should be fine.

    Shazelwood- my score was 91, only a few points higher than yours and my final score was 181. I bet your score is just fine!!

    The testing period doesn't end until the 16th. then it says 10-11 business days afterwards. So Most Likely the last day of April.
