    One question, Fantom25, I just noticed April 30 is on a Saturday. Do you think they will release them on Friday or make us wait until Monday, since they said "business days"?

    Thank you so much, Teacher Groupie! You are helping so, so many of us through this painful process. One side note...I received a raw score of 78 on CIA 5017. Any thoughts on how I did on that? Thanks in advance! In Tennessee, I think I need 153 on 5017.

    5017's Study Companion advertises 120 questions and notes that some may not count; we know that that pretty much guarantees that some aren't counted, and when Praxis discounts questions, it seems to discount 10% to 20%. Whether your score will be high I hesitate to say, but your chances for passing look fairly good to me.

    Hi everyone, I just took the Praxis 5018 Today: I believe my raw scores were LA 30, Math 30 SS 18, Science 20 or 23.(Not sure, I didn't write out my scores since I thought they would be printed out like the Cbest was. I think I passed judging on previous posts (fingers crossed) I had a weird test section after the main test, which I sorta breezed through. I am upset at myself because I second guessed and missed two questions as a result (always go with your fist instinct).
    I am bummed about the LA section, seemed like I should have done better.. I used a general study guide for the 5018 by Learning Express to prepare, it helped, but I found some typos and inaccuracies, so I may use another if needed. Since I am not a math person, I used Khan Academy and Teachers Test Prep That helped. ,

    I hit the wrong button and it posted, but do I have a good chance to pass, I need a Scaled 163, and if I remember right, my raw score was 98-101. My Test was 140 questions for the regular test.

    okay!! Well I've never been the forum type! And planned on just "ghosting" and observing all the responses! But I'm nervous now!! And can't deal!! My praxis scores were

    27- language arts
    25- math
    15 - social studies
    15- science
    That is a 82!! But I keep reading that you need a 83?!!! To earn a 163...... I need a 163 to pass I would be devestated if I failed by 1point?!!!
    There was one user I think "1906" something that scored a 84! And he got a 169! So I guess there is "some" hope....

    Hey! Jkwain I'm glad that you passed! And I hope you are still on the forum! I need a 163 to pass just like you , and saw that you took the test before and scored a 160. What was your raw score when you scored that 160.
    I have a raw score of 82!! And just trying to compare
    Thanks!!

    Hope the best Trey, waiting is no fun, depends on the scaled score is all I can gather. So much info and different information Teacher Test Prep says you need to be over 80% of raw points to pass, but posts here show about 60% was good enough to pass.
    I wish there was just one standardized test nationwide for teachers, not just Praxis 5018 or four Praxis domain subtests, or CSET, etc... it would make life so easy, we have common core for students, why can't we have a common test for teachers? I also am waiting for the secondary LA test 5039, not too hopeful after my LA score on the 5018.

    From what others are saying, I believe you may have passed. I just got an 80 and need 157, so I am right on the borderline too. All we can do is keep praying!!

    I did the same thing and I can tell you that my scores were available on a Friday and I didn't get the official email saying they were ready until that Sunday. If I had waited for the email I would have waited 2 unnecessary days.

    I don't know, I never thought of that. Two more days will kill me. I dreamed I got a 161 last night and I need a 163. I hope that dream does not come true!

    Yep, you should be good to go. I need a 163 and got a 78 raw and am hoping for the best. I don't want to go at it for round 3!

    I am wondering will the numeric entry responses be added to your raw score on Praxis 5018 or are they already included in the raw score

    Also! To answer your question . Based on what I have researched I think the numeric entry answers are not counted and considered apart of the additional 20 "test" questions.
    There just being sampled to see if they are good test questions to incorporate in actual future 5018 tests

    I was wondering. I don't know if I passed yet, and even if I did (I'm praying) I have several friends who haven't after multiple attempts. Is there a way we can start a forum for just study guides and a study group for this test? Wouldn't it be helpful to have an online study group with resources? A google classroom could be created to share things too. I don't know, just a thought. Hopefully we will find out this Friday that we all passed!!!

    That would be awesome! I felt all alone until I found this forum. I'm thinking I will be going at round 3 next week, but am praying that's not the case!

    I don't even know if I want to study anymore. I just might go take the darn thing again if I didn't pass. Every time I study, it's not really worth the time and energy.

    What state do you live in where they are accepting a 157? Most of the rest of us need a 163!

    Me too, then I wouldn't be on pins and needles! I either just missed it or barely got a 163 according to my calculations. I'm praying our test is out of 118 like the last groups! I think that's what it is going to take for me to have passed.
