Which Praxis II Do I Take?
 

 

Wisconsin Foundations of Reading (FoRT)

Education candidates seeking a EC-MC or an MC-EA license are required to take a pass the Foundations of Reading test with a score of 240 or higher.

 
Development of the FoRT

As a result of the Wisconsin Read to Lead Task Force recommendations, a new statutory provision was created. The specific statute 118.19 (14) puts into place a required content test in Foundations of Reading for all Grade K-5 teachers, special education teachers, reading teachers, and reading specialists seeking initial licensure. 

Preparation Materials

This Wisconsin Foundations of Reading Study Guide was created by Dr. Jennifer Arenson Yaeger. Jennifer has over 20 years of experience in the field of education. For the past 10 years, she has offered regional workshops to prepare teachers for the Foundations of Reading MTEL. This document was developed specifically to prepare Wisconsin Test Takers. Her website, referenced on the front cover of the Study Guide, contains helpful documents with practice tests, tips, videos, etc.

UW-Madison’s School of Education Outreach and Partnerships has developed web-based modules to help prepare students for the test. These materials are a good accompaniment to the resources developed by Jennifer Yaeger.

edTPA

The edTPA is a performance assessment required for Wisconsin teacher licensure. All preservice teachers must take and pass the edTPA in order to be considered for a teacher license. UW-Green Bay students may complete the edTPA before, or during, the student teaching semester, but students must complete edTPA training before beginning any work on the edTPA. Please call the education office at 920-465-2137 or email education@uwgb.edu to schedule a meeting with the edTPA coordinator for more information.
