    Hello,
    I am taking both the Fundamentals of Content Knowledge (0511) and the Business Ed (0100) Praxis tests on 6/10. Does anyone know how many questions you need to get correct to get a passing score in PA? Also, from what I have read, the Fundamentals of Content Knowledge is hard to study for since it covers everything...anyone have any advice?

    Thanks!!!

    Neither of these is a basic skills test: for you, basic skills would be the Praxis I/PPST exams. (Basic skills are reading, writing, basic math.)

    30511 Fundamentals of Content Knowledge would be a multiple subjects exam. (Wow - Pennsylvania wants its teachers to show general knowledge! I'm impressed!) According to the information on the Praxis Web site (go to http://www.ets.org/praxis and click on State Requirements), you need a score of 150, and if 30511 runs to type, the scale is 100 to 200. 30511 is a general knowledge test designed for people who are notspecialists in the areas it tests; download the Tests at a Glance document (from the state requirements page, click on the link "30511") to find out what you need to know, and you may find that some of the resources and discussions on the Multiple Subjects Tests subforum are helpful.

    10100 Business, Computers, and Technology is a single subject test. It seems that you need a score of 560 - chances are the scoring scale runs from 100 (or possibly 0) to 1000, though I don't know that for sure. You'll find a Tests at a Glance document for it, too. You may find a little help on the Single Subject Tests subforum - it seems to me that Malcolm and some others have posted on California's equivalent.

    Thanks! I've been using the ETS study guides for both. In addition, I purchased the study guides from praxis secrets.

    You're asking me to remember what I did in June 2006??

    Um. Sorry. Let me be serious: try using the A to Z Forums search tool at the top right of this Web page to search for the phrase "the word is out"... there should be a post, or possibly a thread, with that title that has something to do with teacher tests in business.

    Wait: that doesn't work. Shoot. Give me a moment to rummage...

    Golly, I'm sorry: I can't find the thread. Perhaps Malcolm can help.

    Teacher tests differ from state to state, but they also show family resemblances, so to speak. Try searching here for threads that contain either "Praxis" or "0100" and "business". You can also use the Internet to look up terms that are in the Tests at a Glance document for 0100, and perhaps you'll find some help in Barnes & Noble's SparkCharts (which are best used as sources of terms to look up on the Internet: SparkCharts name more than they explain). There are four SparkCharts that are likely to be helpful with a business exam (Accounting, Finance, Management, and Marketing come to mind).
