South Dakota's Required Teacher Certification Tests as Aligned with South Dakota's Teacher Education Programs and Universities that Offer the Programs

The chart below maps which courses on which South Dakota campuses address the concepts that are included in each test. Linked to each course is a review sheet that highlights course content related to the test.

Listed below are the teacher education programs that are available on each campus and the Praxis II tests that are required for teacher certification in South Dakota. Click on the test code number to see which courses on each campus address their test concepts. Then follow the links from each particular course to a review sheet of topics related to the test concept. A blank cell indicated that the corresponding program is not offered on that specific campus. An asterisk (*) indicates that a test is either not available or has not been adopted for use in South Dakota.

While the use of this web site in no way guarantees that users will pass any or all of the tests, it does provide users with information that should position them well for passing the tests and there by assist in reducing anxieties related to taking these tests.
