Vermont Basic Skills Requirement

Basic Skills Exam* - Praxis Core Academic Skills for Educators: Combined Test (5751)

The Vermont Agency of Education requires that all candidates seeking initial licensure in Vermont meet a basic skills requirement by passing the Praxis Core Academic Skills for Educators Test (Core). You should sign up to take your basic skills examination when you begin studying Foundations of Teaching to ensure that you have time to complete the examination prior to enrollment in Effective Teaching Practices.

Vermont's minimum score requirements can be found here.

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 also wish to consider consulting the Registering for Praxis Exams article.
