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.
