The Iowa Department of Education does not require a basic skills exam for certification. However, WGU requires all students enrolled in an initial teacher preparation program pass a basic skills exam within the first six months of entering the Foundations of Teaching (FOT) domain.
WGU's minimum score requirements for Praxis Core can be found in the WGU Basic Skills handbook article.
To ensure WGU receives your Praxis Core scores, add WGU (Recipient Code #4944) as an official score recipient when you register for Praxis Core. You may wish to consider consulting the Registering for Praxis Exams article.
