Educational Testing Service (ETS) develops and produces the Praxis Series Assessments, which are required for Arkansas educator licensure. If you test in Arkansas, your score report will be sent automatically to the Arkansas Department of Education. If you test outside of Arkansas, select the Arkansas Department of Education (state code 7031) as a score recipient when you register or when you request an additional score report.
