CDE is phasing out the PLACE test and will be available to take ONLY until May of 2017. Also, effective September 1, 2016, Colorado will no longer be giving the Praxis 5018 as the licensure exam for Elementary Content; however, it will be accepted until 2021. CDE Endorsement Requirements Beginning September 1, 2016 the Praxis 5001 will be new licensure exam for Elementary Education grades K-6. The FABULOUS news is that the new 5001 Praxis is divided up into four subtests (see below 5002, 5003, 5004 and 5005) so students not passing any of the subtests will ONLY HAVE TO RETAKE THE SUBTEST THEY DID NOT PASS! Also, the study materials for this new test are excellent and free or available for a small fee. Praxis Preparation Materials So to recap, the following Colorado-approved test are as follows: • PLACE 01 with a passing score of 220 (available until May 2017)* OR • Praxis 5018 with a passing score of 163 (available through 9/1/16*) OR • Praxis 5001 with the below passing scores for each sub-test (available in CO after 9/1/16): o Reading (5002) 157 o Math (5003)157 o Social Studies (5004) 155 o Science (5005)159 *PLEASE NOTE: For those of you who have already taken the Praxis/PLACE, Colorado will provide a 5 year window for acceptance of previously taken exams if you have not applied for licensure as of yet. Please make sure you have read this carefully and if you have specific questions regarding your plan and your requirements, please reach out to your advisor.
