Candidates are required to pass one set of test requirements: either Pearson or ETS/Praxis, not both, during the July 1, 2021 to August 31, 2021 transition period. Any Pearson test requirements not passed prior to September 1, 2021 will need to be taken through ETS/Praxis after that date to earn license eligibility*. Learn more about the upcoming changes and testing transition on the IDOE website. *A helpful FAQ sheet has also been provided by the IDOE.

As of January 8, 2020, Ball State University no longer requires successful completion of the basic skills testing requirement (CASA or an approved alternative). It is no longer required for educator candidates.
