WGU Cut Scores for Assessments That Require Praxis Examinations

If your degree plan includes a Praxis II assessment, then you must meet the cut score published in the table below* to receive a pass on your degree plan for the Praxis II assessment. If you are in an initial teacher preparation program, or if you are in an endorsement program and you wish to add an endorsement to your credential, then you must also meet your state’s cut score to satisfy licensure requirements. The WGU cut score and the state cut score may be different. Each must be met.

*The following cut scores are in effect as of August 1, 2014. Cut scores are subject to change at anytime and this table may not show the current cut score required at the time you take the exam. Check the Assessment Information page in your Degree Plan for the current cut score of your assessment.
