Has anyone ever heard of an unofficial Praxis score changing?
A scaled score? Almost never, in the absence of a compelling reason (such as testing irregularities) that it should change.

Yes the scales score. Thank you so much for replying.
You're welcome. Did you come up barely short, or are you hoping the unofficial score you saw will stand?

A raw score of 33=159. I recently failed praxis 5005 also, all of the material that I studied was not on the test. I purchased the interactive praxis 5005 test from the praxis website after my first attempt and the questions were very similar to my 1st test. Have you retaken yours yet? If so what study material did you use and was the second test similar to your first one? Good luck!!

Did this end up a passing score? I just got a raw score of 83 today and am kind of concerned if I passed or not

Has anyone recently received their score for the 5857 Health and PE Exam? I am trying to figure out if my raw score computes to a passing score. According to a chart I found, in order to receive a passing score of 160, your raw score has to be 74. Does anyone know if that is correct?

I recently took the esol praxis. After clicking report scores, I saw a score of 200 on the screen. There were 120 questions on the test. How is this possible? There must be an error. Any ideas?
A 200 is a perfect score. Congratulations! The scoring system goes from 100 to 200. Google "understanding your praxis scores" to get an ETS document providing more info (look at the bottom)

Hi I'm new to this and I'm curious about my PRAXIS 5038 scores. I took the test and received a 182 raw score with a total of 90 questions correct out of 130. However I need a 167 scaled score to pass . Anyone have any idea if I came close to passing? I'm very anxious and want to begin seeking employment for next year but I don't want to do so with out my certification completed.
Let me see if I can explain, kellybook53.
A raw score is the number of points one actually earns on the test; if the test is a standard multiple-choice test, the raw score will be less than or equal to the number of questions available, although if the test includes matching questions or drag-and-drop questions, some questions will be associated with more than one raw point, and any constructed responses are typically graded on a scale from 0 to 3, 0 to 4, or 0 to 6. It is possible for a raw score to be less than 100.
Any given teacher test exists in more than one version or edition. The versions inevitably differ both in specific topics that they cover and in difficulty - try writing two or three questions that are exactly equivalent in difficulty - so a raw score of 90 on the test version that you took can't always be compared to a raw score of 90 on a different version of the same test.
A scaled score takes the raw score as input and generates a number on a scale from 100 to 200. The algorithm that converts raw scores to scaled scores takes into account the comparative difficulty of the version of the test that one took, and the point of scaling is to produce scores that can reasonably be compared.
Your 182 isn't a raw score, it's an unofficial scaled score. Let me offer unofficial congratulations, though I'd recommend waiting to celebrate fully until you receive your official score report.

Thank so much! I appreciate it! I will keep my fingers crossed till I get my official report.

Hello, this is my first time posting. I have taken 3 praxis exams (elementary content knowledge, elementary plt, and elementary curriculum and instruction) and have passed them all. I am taking my final praxis, reading 5203 in two days and was curious if anybody has taken it before, I am trying to get an idea of how many raw points are needed to pass. Thanks in advance
