The Educational Testing Service (ETS) has announced that Praxis test-takers will now only be required to pay a registration fee one time during a testing year. Beginning with the September 2007 test date, a test-taker will only have to pay the registration fee the first time the test-taker registers during the 2007-2008 testing year. Any subsequent registrations within the testing year will not require a registration fee. If test-takers submit a registration fee when one is not required, that fee will automatically be refunded.
Emergency registration will replace standby testing. Unlike standby testing, emergency registration will guarantee the test-taker a seat. Test-takers who must take a paper/pencil test but have missed the regular and late registration deadline dates, will have an opportunity to use emergency registration up until the Friday one week prior to the test date. Emergency registration is available only by registering online. The fee for this service is $75.
