    I took the Praxis 5038 test last week. It displayed a raw score of 86.

    I read online, "ETS provides a recommended passing score from the multistate standard-setting study to help education agencies determine an appropriate operational passing score. For the Praxis English Language Arts: Content Knowledge test, the recommended passing score1 is 79 out of a possible 110 raw-score points. The scaled score associated with a raw score of 79 is 167 on a 100–200 scale."

    I wasn't able to find any additional information about the raw score for 5038. Please let me know if you do!

    Some states will give you a couple of points leeway if you have a high enough GPA. Don't know that it is relevant to you, but I have seen it referenced here in NJ.

    Congratulations, Jefferson1!

    Any recommended raw score that ETS posts will have to take into account all possible versions of a test and use a number that will work no matter how the questions are weighted in the scaled score. Enough of your correct answers must have been on relatively hard questions to put you over the top. Well done!

    Help! I took the 5038 test today. Once I finished it said I had a review score of 187. I called ets and they said a review score is the multiple choice score before they grade the interactive questions (ex: drag the correct answers into the boxes, or check all that apply) I'm dying to know what impact those questions can have on the 187. I need a 167 to pass in virginia. Has anybody else had this happen? Did anybody get a review score? How different was your actual score?

    Thanks in advance!

    "Interactive questions" should also include constructed response questions (frankly, software should be able to grade either check-all-that-apply or drag-answer-into-box, or for that matter fill-in-correct-digits, but teacher-test companies are their own thing.) Having noted which, let me state that the only impact that such questions should be able to have on your score is to raise it, since both Praxis and Pearson tests give zero credit for wrong multiple-choice answers but do not ever dock an additional point or fraction thereof for a wrong answer. That is, unless some testing irregularity is uncovered, you can only gain ground at this point.

    Praxis scores on a scale from 100 to 200. While I wouldn't recommend opening the champagne yet, you'd be within your rights (especially in hot and humid SoCal) to be chilling it.
