I can help you. I have a Praxis Series "Tests at a Glance" booklet. I
can send it to you snail mail if you want. Let me tell you my experience
with the Praxis II (Art Education) test. When I changed my major from General
Art to Art Ed. I was told I had to take a Praxis Test. Long story short, I
was SUPPOSED to take the Praxis I right away (reading, writing & math tests)
and LATER (during student teaching or at the very least my senior year) I was
to take the Praxis II. The reason was so I would have all of my art classes
and education classes under my belt. WELL, what happened was I went to the
secretary on the right instead of the secretary on the left (ed. bldg.) AND
(fast forward) I ended up taking the Praxis II WAY BEFORE I was supposed to.
I DID NOT HAVE all of my art classes such as printmaking. ceramics,
aesthetics, only 1 art history, art for children, and only 1 education class.
I should have failed this test, but I passed it!!!! I heard there were a lot
of printmaking questions and there were a lot of those. I did not have the
booklet to study or anything. A Prof. gave me a list of key points I would
need to know for Printmaking and my Art Appreciation memory and 1 Art History
class helped. A lot was common sense guessing because that is all I knew. I
did the same for the Education questions.
The content of the questions are:
10% Art Elements, Principles of Design, Analysis/Interpretation of Art works
(they have pictures) 15 questions
16% Themes, Styles, Artworks, Artists, Theories of Art 24 questions
16% The Influences that exists between World Art & Culture 24 questions
15% Materials, Tools, Procedures 21 questions
15% Techniques and Procedures 23 questions
10% Effects Produced by Materials, Tools, Techniques and Processes 15
questions (this was where the printmaking & ceramics kicked in)
18% Professional Teaching Skills, Practices, Theories, and Organizations 28
Let me know if I can help you anymore. You should do fine. Good Luck.
