Welcome to the Office of Testing Services
The Office of Testing Services is a unit within Appalachian's University College. University College consists of the university's integrated general education curriculum, academic support services, residential learning communities, and co-curricular programming - all designed to support the work of students both inside and outside of the classroom. For more information on University College at Appalachian State University, go to universitycollege.appstate.edu/
The mission of the Office of Testing Services is to provide high quality testing and assessment services that observe the National College Testing Association (NCTA) professional testing standards and guidelines in order to successfully meet the growing needs of our students, faculty, administration and community.
Testing Services provides a Computer Based Testing Center in the John Thomas Student Support Building for the administration of national entrance/certification exams. We also administer nationally scheduled paper and pencil exams such as LSAT, PRAXIS II, GRE Subject Tests, and National Counselors Exam on Saturdays throughout the year in Anne Belk Hall/Old Belk Library. Please check the calendar for test dates and locations.

The Praxis I tests (also called Pre-professional Skills Test - PPST) measure basic skills in Math, Reading and Writing and are required for entrance into the App State College of Education. They are offered on campus via computer Monday through Friday in the Office of Testing Services in the JET Bldg. We do not offer the paper and pencil version of these tests. For more information about the Praxis I tests and how to register on line, go to http://www.ets.org/praxis/about/praxisi
The Praxis II tests or "Subject Assessments," measure knowledge of specific subjects that K–12 educators will teach, as well as general and subject-specific teaching skills and knowledge. These tests are ususally taken your senior year and have to be completed before graduation. The Praxis II tests are migrating gradually from the paper and pencil format to a computer based format, so you should check the Praxis web site to see which format of test you will need for graduation. The computer based Praxis II tests are offered on fixed dates only and the dates are listed on the web page. If your test is a paper and pencil test, the next national test dates are June 8 and July 20. The dates for the next school year should be published on the web page around the first of August.
