Exams with Constructed Response Questions
Some Praxis tests require the test taker to write a short essay. These are called constructed response questions. Constructed response questions are scored by trained educational professionals. Two scorers will independently rate each of your written responses, and a third will weigh in if the two graders do not agree within one point. Usually, tests with a constructed response section allocate 25% of the overall score to the constructed response. For example, on the Praxis Principles of Learning and Teaching (PLT), the selected response part of the test is worth 75% of the overall score, and the constructed response is worth 25% of the overall score.
