## What’s on the Exam?

First, let’s talk about the questions on the Praxis Middle School Mathematics test. There are 66 questions in total, some being selected-response and others being numeric entry.

**Selected-Response**

Selected-response questions can appear in several different forms:

- Single-selection multiple-choice
- Selecting ALL correct answers from a list of choices
- Selecting the correct answer from a drop-down menu
- Clicking parts of a graphic such as a map or a chart
- Dragging and dropping answers into a targeted area on the screen

**Numeric Entry**

Numeric Entry questions involve entering numbers into answer boxes, rather than selecting an answer out of multiple choices.

The good news is that you are allowed to use a calculator at any point during the test!

The time limit for the test is 2 hours. There aren’t any scheduled breaks, but you’re free to take a 10-minute restroom break if needed!

## Praxis Scores

The Praxis Middle School Mathematics test is scored using a scaled scoring method. Here’s how it works:

For every question you answer correctly, you get one point added to your **raw score**. At the end of the test, your final raw score will be converted to a **scaled score**. This scaled score will range somewhere between 100 and 200.

The score you need in order to pass varies from state to state, but most states require a minimum score of 157.

The reason your raw score is converted to a scaled score is because everyone that takes the test is given a slightly different set of questions. Since everyone has a different arrangement of questions, and because some questions are harder than others, converting your raw score to a scaled score ensures a more even playing field.

### Receiving Your Score

When you receive your skill report, it will tell you how many questions you missed in each section and generally whether you passed or not.

Your scores will become available on your Praxis account on the score reporting date. When you get the score back depends on the testing date.
