Praxis Business Education Exam Registration

To register for the exam, you will need to create an online ETS account. Once this account is created, you can apply to take the exam.

During the exam registration, you will be asked to select the test-taking format (remote or at a testing center), test location (if you are taking the test at a testing center), and test date. You will also need to pay the $130 exam fee.

Test Day

In-person Testing

On the day of your test, you should arrive at the testing center 30 minutes before the scheduled appointment time. Once you arrive, you will be asked to present two forms of valid identification, one of which must be a photo ID.

Personal items, such as your cell phone, wallet, and keys, will not be allowed into the testing area, so you will be asked to leave such items at home or in your car.

Once you are checked in, the proctor will lead you to the testing area and provide instructions on taking the exam.

Remote Testing

To take the exam remotely, you must use a laptop or desktop computer, and you must have a working speaker, microphone, and camera (internal or external). Before test day, you will need to download and install the ETS Secure Test Browser on your computer. This browser is what you are required to use to take the test.

Your environment must be private, with no other people walking in and out of your testing area. The area where you take the exam must be clear of all personal items, and you will not be allowed to wear headphones. The proctor will ask you to move the camera around so that your testing area can be observed.

Once the proctor has determined you are ready, they will walk you through the test-taking process.

How the Praxis Business Education Exam is Scored

To determine your score, one numerical point is added to your raw score for every question you answer correctly. Your raw score is then converted to a scaled score.

You should receive your final score report within five weeks after testing.
