Praxis Core Reading

Praxis Core READING - 85 min

There are two basic categories of questions on the Praxis Reading Exam:

Content questions require you to understand the explicit information presented in the readings. These are what many teachers call ‘right there’ questions—you can point to them directly in the text.

Analysis questions require you to analyze the readings for deeper understanding. In these questions, the answers are NOT explicitly stated in the passage and require the reader to use inference to answer the questions.

The reading has short passages, long passages, double passages, and graphs and charts.
