Reading Strategies

The PRAXIS Reading test is timed. For the paper-based test, you have only 60 minutes to answer a total of 40 questions. For the computer-based test, you have 75 minutes to answer 46 questions.

When it comes to answering questions related to a reading passage

  • Read the passage quickly, identifying the main idea or primary purpose.
  • Read the multiple choice questions:

    Eliminate incorrect answers.

    Answer the questions that you can; come back to those questions that you cannot easily answer.

  • Refer back to passage only when needed to answer questions.
