Praxis Professional School Counselor Passing Scores

Praxis Professional School Counselor by State

Entry-level school counselors must demonstrate their skills and knowledge on the Praxis Professional School Counselor (5421) exam. Comprised of 120 questions to be answered over the course of two hours, the test demands serious advanced preparation. Test questions require examinees to be well-versed in the research-based counseling techniques required for professional practice. Examinees must be ready to answer questions involving individual students, classroom situations and school-wide events. All items are selected-response, so practicing with strategies like the process of elimination can help registrants earn a passing score.


The range of possible scores is 100 to 200.
