Praxis score changes?
 
Hello i have a question.
1) How come some Graduate schools in VA are asking for a higher passing Praxis core scores?
[William and Mary, George Mason] they r asking 178 for Math but i just check https://www.ets.org/praxis/va/requirements/ and they ask for 150


why do scores vary?

colleges and universities
 
are able to set whatever entrance requirements they want for students. It may be that by setting higher than passing scores for entrance they are branding themselves as "highly selective" no matter what percentage of students they accept.

Praxis
 
Sorry, but different schools can ask for different scores. I know it does not seem fair. I have been trying to pass mine for a while and I just keep failing. It is getting expensive to keep taking these exams. Here I am on the Dean's list, yet can not pass the Praxis core. I have paid so much in study material and tutors and still keep failing.
