The Praxis Core is considered a basic skills test and is divided into 3 sections: reading, writing, and math.
Reading (5713) - You will have 85 min to complete 56 selected response questions on a variety of reading passages: short passages, long passages, double passages, and graphs and charts.
Writing (5723) - You will have 100 min to complete the entire writing test. It is 2 sections: a selected response section (multiple choice) and a constructed response section (essay).
Math (5733) - You will have 85 min to complete 56 selected response questions that assess a variety of math skills: number and quantity, algebra and geometry, and statistics and probability.
The Praxis Core Math was recently changed form 5732 to 5733. The test was revised to better represent the skills teachers need to be successful in the classroom. The biggest change in the math was a reduction in algebra and geometry questions and an increase in statistics and probability questions. Most states have moved to the new test, but check with your state to be sure. We go over these changes and the overall structure of the Praxis Core math in this video.
