Passing scores on a content knowledge test (Praxis Subject Assessment) and on a pedagogy or teaching skills test (level-appropriate Praxis Subject Assessment Principles of Learning and Teaching [PLT] test) are required for an initial Kansas teaching license.
A passing score on a content knowledge test (Praxis Subject Assessment) is required for any Added (Teaching) Endorsement or School Specialist License.
A passing score on the appropriate School Leadership Series (SLS) assessment is required to add a Building Leadership or District Leadership license.
Praxis Subject Assessment information including registration and required scores for Kansas are available on the Educational Testing Service web site at
The Praxis Subject Assessments are offered in a computer-delivered format. The exams are offered in testing windows.
The Educational Testing Service no longer mails a printed score report and you must access your test results online. Therefore, approximately two to three weeks following your test administration date, you should log onto your Praxis Profile and download and save the PDF file to a secure location. You also are strongly encouraged to print a couple of hard copies of your score report to keep in a safe place. YOU HAVE ONLY A LIMITED AMOUNT OF TIME to download and save your scores and if you fail to do so, the Educational Testing Service will charge you a fee to access your scores at a later date. Test results are available earlier by utilizing the Scores by Phone service for an additional fee.
The SLS assessments are available only in a computer delivered format. Information including registration can be found at
During the registration process for both the PRAXIS II and SLS, test takers should list Pittsburg State University as a score recipient. PSU is required to provide verification of completed assessments as part of the licensing process.
Fees for Required Assessments
Praxis Subject Assessment fees currently fall within the $120-160 range for each test. SLS fees currently are $425 for the School Leaders Licensure Assessment and $350 for the School Superintendent Assessment.
Again, Praxis Subject Assessment and SLS fees are subject to increase at any time.
