Praxis Information

The School Psychology Programs require passing of the PRAXIS examination as part of the degree requirement.  Information about the School Psychologist Test (5402) may be found at the National Association of School Psychologists (NASP) web site


The School Psychologist Praxis Test (5402) is a 2-hour-and-20-minute test and contains 140 selected-response items covering four main content areas of the NASP Practice Model:

  • Professional Practices, Practices that Permeate All Aspects of Service Delivery (approximately 42 items)
  • Direct and Indirect Services for Children, Families, and Schools (Student-Level Services) (approximately 32 items)
  • System-Level Services (approximately 22 items)
  • Foundations of School Psychological Service Delivery (approximately 44 items)

Each exam will contain pretest items that do not contribute to the candidate’s score.

As recommended by the standard setting panel, the passing score set by NASP for the exam is 147 (on a 100-200 reporting scale). Note that the passing score is expressed in terms of a scaled score (on a 100-200 scale) and not in terms of the raw score (i.e., number of items answered correctly on a particular form of the test).
