Licensure Tests

HTSB Licensure Tests and Passing Scores

If you are in a Hawaii preparation program, then your Hawaii preparation provider will tell you what test(s) to take prior to your clinical experience (e.g. Student Teaching). Add a Teaching Field: If you are interested in “adding a field” to your license, then only select tests from the webpage linked here, which shows tests for Hawaii.  Each state has different licensure tests, do not go to the general ETS Praxis page.  If you need confirmation of the test you need to take, send a message using your Contact HTSB tab in your HTSB profile, telling us what license field you want to add, and we will confirm the test code by return message.
