Even though test scores are sent to Liberty electronically from the testing company, teacher candidates are responsible for printing and storing records of the official score sheets. Official score sheets must be submitted by the candidate as a scanned copy to the Gate 3 Student Teaching Application. A hard copy of the official score sheets must be submitted by the candidate to the Liberty University Teacher Licensure Office for Gate 4 paperwork.
A few weeks after the teacher candidate takes the Praxis exam, the scores may be viewed on the ETS website. At the time of viewing, the official score sheets should be saved in the electronic version by the candidate to be printed in hard copy format. The scores remain on the website approximately 45 calendar days from the score reporting date before they are removed and no longer viewable or printable by the teacher candidate. An additional fee is charged by ETS for students to access the score reports after the initial display period.
Because only hard copy score sheets are accepted with the state licensure applications, candidates must print their score sheets!
If a candidate forgets to print his/her score sheet during the 45-day window, he/she must then pay an additional fee to ETS to view and print the scores again. These policies may be found on the ETS website.
The VCLA scores are mailed by the U.S. Postal Service directly to the teacher candidate. After receiving the official score sheets in the mail, the teacher candidate should scan these scores.
