Teacher candidates in the Lincoln University Department of Education are required to pass a licensure assessment in the area of certification sought before they are allowed to student teach. The Praxis II assessment will be replaced by the Missouri Content Assessments starting in the Fall 2014 semester.

If you have already passed the Praxis II in your area of certification, your scores will be accepted for program completion until 12/31/2016. A list of Praxis II tests required for your certification area can be found at the following link: Missouri Test Requirements.
