The College of Education at Bowie State University incorporates technology-rich curriculum and classrooms to facilitate and enhance its teacher preparation programs. In accordance with the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) and Maryland standards, which encourage the promotion of technology to develop and sustain critical thinking, curriculum, materials, and learning experiences in the teacher education classroom, the school offers a dedicated laboratory environment to its students for test preparation, scholarship, competency in the use of technology, and collaborative classroom experiences. Open throughout the calendar year, the Praxis Lab increases student awareness of technological issues involving teaching and learning while also proving to be a valuable resource tool.
PRAXIS CORE EXAMS
The Praxis CORE exams consists of three timed tests in the subject areas of reading, writing, and math. All of the timed tests are multiple-choice, but the writing component also requires a written essay. Required scores for the PRAXIS CORE exams are mandated by the Maryland State Department of Education and can accessed here.
Praxis Subject Assessment exams consists of content-based questions to assess student knowledge of specific subjects such as mathematics, English, reading, social studies, and guidance and counseling, among many areas.
