Abstract:The PRAXIS I® PPST exam is widely used as an entry requirement to teacher preparation programs, and as such represents a barrier for some to enter the teaching profession. Preparation programs have successfully increased student success rates on the PPST. A new online preparatory program is available through the University of Hawai‘i-Mānoa (UHM), including diagnostic pretests and individually tailored content delivery paths in math, reading, and writing. By partnering with Pacific Resources for Education and Learning (PREL), the College of Education at UHM has made this system available to Pacific nations. Participants evidence a preference for preparing in one or two of the PPST content areas rather than all three. Availability of individual content preparation systems has been made available to encourage student use. An improved licensure rate based on successful PPST completion is expected in response to system availability.
