Re: Praxis II Survey
jamie

    Hello Dan. I do not know if you want a response to this
    question, but I will give it anyway. NO I DO NOT FEEL THE
    PRAXIS II CONTENT KNOWLEDGE EXAM IS VALID!!! I believe it
    is pretty clear how I feel about the praxis. I would rather
    have to prepare a portfolio for two years than to have to
    take the praxis! The praxis questions ( I feel) do not
    measure my knowledge. In all of my Master level class, the
    instructors preach about not to assess students on just
    test. Then why is the praxis the only way one is assessed!
    Sorry if you do not need this info- I just had to let
    someone know how I feel.On 1/06/03, Dan wrote:
