Q. PRAXIS

In 1991, the Colorado General Assembly approved a significant policy for educational reform: The Educator Licensing Act. This act involved changes in the professional standards for Colorado educational personnel. The law called for the implementation of a testing program as part of the licensing process. In 2016, the Colorado State Board of Education approved the Praxis assessments for all content areas. The Praxis exam must be taken and passed to student teach. 

Exam: Art education students are required to take the Art Content and Analysis (5135) exam and pass with a score of 158.  Click this link to get an overview of the Praxis Subject Assessments. On this page, you will find answers to the following questions:
