Interactive Practice Tests
Use the Interactive Practice Tests (IPTs) to prepare for the Program Admission assessment. Each practice test allows you to answer one set of test questions to simulate what you will experience on the day of the test. It is approximately the same length as the actual test; however, the questions in the IPT are sample questions and do not appear on the actual test. After you complete the practice test, you can see if you answered the selected-response questions correctly or incorrectly and get explanations for the correct answers. Feedback is not provided for the constructed-response questions.
A practice test for each subtest in the Program Admission assessment is available for purchase through the ETS Store at $18 per subscription. Note: There is only one version available for this test title, so each time you take the practice test, you answer the same questions in the same order. Retaking or repurchasing the same practice test more than once does not give you different practice questions or change the order in which the questions are delivered.

Created for Praxis® Core Academic Skills for Educators (CORE), this resource can also be used to prepare for the GACE Program Admission assessment. It is a very useful study tool for GACE because it covers the same skills that appear on both assessments.
- Custom Study Plan
- Skill Practices
- Full-length, timed, practice tests
Important Note: Because this was created for Praxis Core, some functions will not be relevant for GACE (e.g., selection of official test dates, choice of where your scores will be reported).
The Praxis Core and the GACE Program Admission assessment are virtually identical, so using this resource for diagnostic purposes, studying, and practice will be extremely helpful in preparing to take the GACE Program Admission assessment.
Support Videos and Exercises for Test II Mathematics
