Is the Praxis 5095 hard to pass?
The Praxis 5095 covers a vast amount of content on topics ranging from teaching practices in the PE classroom, nutrition, and human anatomy and physiology. Many of the questions are scenario-based, meaning you will have to identify best practices to use given a PE classroom situation. The test covers all grades–K-12.
This is one of the more difficult Praxis exams because of the complex topics covered in anatomy and physiology.
Finally, the Praxis 5095 has constructed-response questions that require you to write essays based on PE instructional practices and classroom situations.
Do not underestimate this exam. The average first-time pass rate for most Praxis exams is less than 50%.
You will have two hours to complete the exam.
The exam is administered all at once, meaning you will take all the sections of the exam as one test. There are 90 selected-response questions and two constructed-response questions. The five content categories covered on the exam are:
- Content Knowledge and Student Growth and Development - 27 questions
- Management, Motivation, and Communication - 23 questions
- Planning, Instruction, and Student Assessment - 23 questions
- Collaboration, Reflection, and Technology - 17 questions
- Instructional Design (two constructed-response questions)
You’ll need to know a lot of information to be successful on this test.
But fear not! Our study guide covers it all.
How many questions do I have to get right to pass the Praxis 5095?
It is difficult to predict exactly how many questions you must get correct to pass the Praxis 5095 because a scale score is used rather than a raw score. This means that your raw score–how many you got correct–is put into a formula to calculate a scale score.
To keep things simple, we recommend scoring at least a 75% on the practice tests before you go in to take the exam. Getting 75% of the questions correct when you practice indicates you are ready to take the actual test.
For the constructed-response portion of the exam, scoring gets more complicated. 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. The constructed-response section is worth 25% of your overall score on the Praxis 5095.

Does the Praxis 5095 study guide have the same questions as the real exam?
While our study guide is aligned with the test, it is against testing policy to share items on the actual exam. State tests are secure, standardized, and heavily regulated.
There are hundreds of test questions in the item banks for each exam. When you take the exam, your version of the test will be different from other versions and will have questions randomly pulled from the item banks. This ensures test security, validity, and reliability. Trying to memorize what you think will be on your test is an exercise in futility. Instead, you should study the skills and content outlined in the specifications and blueprint of the exam.
Everything in our study guide is aligned with the test specifications and blueprint for the exam. That way, you can review how the test is designed and what skills are assessed. The questions in our study guide are structured similarly to what you will encounter on test day, but they are not the same exact questions on the real exam.
Is this the best study guide for the Praxis 5095?
Obviously, we believe our study guide is the very best resource you can purchase to prepare for the Praxis 5095. The book is sectioned out by each content category, and within those categories we’ve aligned all of the information with the test specifications and blueprint. This ensures you are studying what you will see on test day–nothing more, nothing less.
In each section, there are practice items that align specifically with each category. In addition, we have detailed answer explanations for every question in our study guide. This ensures you know why you got something correct or incorrect. Our study guide contains a full-length practice test with answer explanations. In all, you have 170 practice questions to work with.
Finally, there is a comprehensive writing section in the study guide to help you with the constructed-response portion of the test. We provide you with several writing prompts and sample essays, so you can practice your writing effectively.
Does the Praxis 5095 study guide contain practice tests?
Yes. There is a full-length practice test at the end of the study guide, and there are practice test questions after each content category. You have approximately 170 practice test questions to work with when you use our study guide. All of the questions are categorized by skill and contain detailed answer explanations.
Finally, we provide several writing prompts with sample essays for you to use when you're practicing for the constructed-response portion of the exam.
How long should I study for the Praxis 5095?
People have a range of skill levels when it comes to this test, so it is difficult for us to tell you exactly how long you need to study. Because this test covers an expansive amount of content, we recommend short, incremental practice over time. This is much better than cramming all your studying into one or two weekends. Using 20-30-minute study sessions over a 2-3 week period is ideal.
We also recommend you spend some time practicing your writing skills for this test.
What can I teach by passing the Praxis 5095?
States use the Praxis Physical Education: Content and Design 5095 to certify their K-12 physical education teachers. However, every state has its own requirements for certification, so be sure to visit your state’s Department of Education website and find out exactly what you’re required to do before registering for the exam or buying materials.
What other study guides should I combine this with?
Depending on the state in which you are seeking certification, this will vary. That’s why it is extremely important you check with your state’s Department of Education before you purchase test prep materials to determine exactly which tests are required.
Very informative and helpful!
This packet was very informative . Thank you so much!
I bought the electronic version on Friday and took the exam the next day. Most of the questions were not on the exam. The main questions that were on the exam were the SHAPE organizations and what their purpose is like the national physical education and it asked about lightening and your outside with kids what do you do?
Several that were not even on the study guide or even close to what the study guide had on it. I’m very discouraged I did not pass.
First off, I would like to say thank you!! I've bought study material from all over. You name it, I purchased it. But none seemed to help; until I went to YouTube and found a video on CR. I clicked the link and never looked back! This was by far the best. Well laid out and effective. Trust me when I say, "you will NOT find any other study material like it."
