As part of the degree requirement, all students must submit a passing score on the Praxis II; Subject Assessments Test. In order to graduate in the spring of the second year, students must submit the passing score to the department no later than two weeks prior to the graduation date. Students are advised not to take the test before the spring semester of their final year in the program.

Below are resources available for Praxis preparation:

Information from ASHA (start here): http://www.asha.org/certification/praxis/preparation/

Information from ETS about registration (test 5331): http://www.ets.org/praxis/register/

Praxis practice materials are also available on the SharePoint site for Master's Program in Speech-Language Pathology students (login required)

Your official score report will be available online via your My Praxis® account on the score release date. (See ETS website for exact dates.) This score report is downloadable as a PDF. In addition, your scores will also be sent to up to four institutions/agencies you selected during the registration process. We recommend that you send your scores to ASHA and the licensure board for the state(s) in which you intend to work.  You may provide Loyola a copy of the downloadable PDF, which should be sent to Ms. Emilie Aguilar, Director of Program Operations.

Additionally, the Praxis test in Speech-Language Pathology is administered during a specific testing window and scores will be available 15–16 business days after testing window closes (regardless of the specific day on which you tested within that window). Please be aware of this testing window in relation to Loyola's graduation date in May.
