All undergraduate Education programs, and Transition to Teaching, may only admit persons who can demonstrate state-mandated proficiencies in Reading, Writing, and Mathematics. ETS's Praxis 1 had been the Indiana-approved series of tests, but has been discontinued--passing scores earned prior to 9/1/13 will be honored. Pearson's CASA (CORE Academic Skills Assessment) tests are now the 'normal' way to assess these skills. There are other state-approved alternatives, including certain SAT, ACT, and GRE scores--see your advisor for details (contact info below).
IMPORTANT NOTE: CASA registration (details in flyer link above) requires that one register and pay for the test(s) BEFORE they show testing centers and available testing appointments. One may cancel testing appointments and registration; if done at least 24 hours prior to the testing appointment, a full refund is made by Pearson.
