How to submit my PRAXIS result?

For teachers that registered with the Kean CS Hub, the following should be provided for review on completion of the certificate:

0. when you register, request that the Praxis 5962 CS test scores be sent electronically by ETS to Kean University, ATTN: Dr. Patricia Morreale.

Hint: NJ isn't demanding the test yet, so you can't select it through the state. Before you select the state, there is an area where you can select by test instead. (you might have to scroll down to find it) - it is on the same screen where you are asked to select your state. Kean University should be on the list.


1. Scan and upload the completion certificate for the Praxis 5652 CS exam using this Dropbox:

https://www.dropbox.com/request/Ig5MKc08oq2YBdSsAryE


Hint: If you are already a part of the program and received a scholarship or a study-on-your-own notification you can submit your results by December 2021 (strictly before 2022). The soft baseline for the test score is 150+/200. It takes about two weeks to get the result from ETS and also, please, consider a time to process the payment.


2. Fill out the form found here for our final report to the NJ DOE. This will allow us continue to offer the Praxis CS program to other NJ educators.


3. Submit your documents for payment (this is after you passed the exam). Complete the invoice found here: link to invoice, your W9 form and submit documents using the link provided below: Dropbox link for tax forms to be submitted (this is a different link than the Certificates): https://www.dropbox.com/request/5E7a4fpSQmpJj7qS95KC


Hint: On the W9: section #3 requires you to check off the box Individual/sole proprietor or single-member LLC. Sections #5 and #6 require your address. Part l: Enter your Social Security number as your Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN). Part II: Certification- your signature and date. Invoice Submission Example can be found here.
