Re: NTE-Praxis Art Ed Test

I took the Praxis last year. It was a tough test for me because my art
education had been started in the 80s and finished in the late 90s. I did
well but I studied an easy picture art dictionary.
There were 8 of us that took the test and we realized that there were at
least 4 versions of the test. Each of them seemed to have had a focus area
along with questions on all aspects of art history of the entire world (the
main focus was on art history of old Europe and US/past and present),
education, sculpture, printing, graphics, moviemaking, photography, picture
recognition, painting water and oil, brushes, computer generated art,
elements of art and design and each of the individual topics, art critiquing
(SP), definitions in all of the areas I just mentioned.
If I can think of anything else I will write. I am not sure that there is
anything specific you can study that will help. The test is so broad that
having a broad base in art education to begin with is very important. I
happened to take the version that focused with printing and I hadn't had
printing yet. The test is multiple choice but the answers can sound very
similar after a while. The education part of the test had questions similar
to what would you do if.........? Use common sense and dig deep into your
brain for the answers. I did well but I really studied all of my previous
notes and have an elementary art and early childhood background. I didn't
miss any on the education part of the test, that really helped my score.
You can always take it again if you do poorly. For an idea of the types of
questions you can buy one of the other versions of the practice Praxis test.
If you have any other questions please write.
