AECAP Basic Skills Testing or Praxis Core Academic Skills Assessment
Basic Skills Testing required for Teacher Education Program eligibility and admission.
English Competency Exam (ECE)
Students who have completed English 101 and English 102 and a total of 48 hours are eligible. A wise student will not postpone taking the examination, since waiting until late in one’s college career to take the examination may delay graduation. Students must take and pass the exam NO LATER than the semester BEFORE they plan to apply for graduation.
One of these assessments must be completed to meet graduation requirements.
The Praxis II exam is required for all teacher education candidates prior to internship and is also a certification requirement. This state-mandated requirement applies to all initial certifications, including Class B certification, Alternative A Masters, add-on certification, and any graduate degree program that is deemed initial certification. Teacher education candidates must list ALSDE and JSU as a recipient of the test score at the time of registration. Failure to do so may delay certification by the Alabama State Department of Education.
