    I'm in Missouri but go to a school through Iowa, so my certification goes off their state then will transfer to Missouri. I'm lucky from what it sounds like. Iowa needs a 157 to pass. It was 154 last year!!! I still have to pass the PLT so I am hoping to work on that one now.

    I think that is a wonderful idea. We can put our true knowledge together. I was extremely disappointed and felt very ripped off by the ets study guides, online practice tests I purchased plus books that I bought in stores. My test questions weren't anywhere along those lines and I was helped none by those materials!

    Yes, the majority of us need 163. Good luck, though!

    Can we ask the admin if we can start a study group on here? I am pretty new to this and didn't know if we can start a forum of our own called 5018 Study Group. Thanks

    I just pray I pass too. My raw score was 2 less than yours, so I hope it's enough for 157.

    You're perfectly welcome to start a study-group thread; I think you'll find it works best to start more than one - a thread for English/language arts, a thread for history, a thread for math, and so on - partly because more focused discussions are easier to follow, and partly because these subjects are also tested in other states' multiple-subject teacher exams so you might get some good contributions from takers of all those state-specific Pearson exams, too.

    Forums are a different matter, but let me clarify some terminology first. What you're reading right now, right here with my nonexistent avatar beside it is one of 205 (and counting) posts that make up the thread "PRAXIS 5018 Pass/Fail Question". This thread is part of the subforum "Multiple Subject Tests", which in turn is part of the forum "Examinations for Teachers" (though I might be the only person on A to Z who consistently distinguishes subforums from forums, but that's my style). Forums exist on the administrative level of A to Z. Anyway, members can start threads, but only the site owner can start forums or subforums.

    I have felt the same. I tried Teachers test prep free study guides and they helped a little, but it was so much information! They are all different and no amount of studying has helped me. I'm to the point of just going in and taking it until I pass. Hopefully we all get good news on Friday.

    Hello...how many did you get correct in each section? I would like an idea and compare them to what I received...also, how do you figure out your raw score?

    I made a 90 total raw score on my 5018. It was 140 questions. I did well in math and English, but very low in social studies and science. Will it be weighed differently on the sections? Like everyone else I am very nervous. I check to see if my scores have been posted at least 10 times a day!!

    If I recall correctly, there are 80 English/language arts questions, 55 math questions, 55 science questions, and 50 social studies questions. (I might have science and social studies backwards.) English/language arts counts more than the other domains (=subject areas) because there are simply more raw points available, but overall a math question isn't weighted lower just because it's a math question. And it's generally true of a teacher test for which just one scaled score is reported that one passes or doesn't pass the whole thing AND that doing very well on one domain can compensate for doing less well on another domain.

    You tested in March? 4/2 for scores? We tested in April and our scores are released on Saturday. Your previous score does not match up with what others are reporting. I'm confused and now am worried I didn't pass.

    You will be fine, I'm praying a 78 got me a 163. It might be wishful thinking. I'm not going to sleep tonight!

    Has anyone found their scores out yet? I didn't know if everyone got their's at the same time or if it was alphabetically. I have a last name that starts with W so I was just getting a little anxious.

    I will post as soon as I know. I have been checking all day!!! Doing math computations, trying to figure out if I think I passed. I have to stop and just wait until the scores are in and quit guessing!
