same here taken math praxis four times, going in for number 5, and if there is a class action suit I'm in. I talked to a math professor who said it a conceptual test , not based on you math knowledge, and they did away with hand held calculators to get rid on teacher applicants.

The ETS’ Fiefdom should Fall

1.0
Details
I had to file a complaint against the ETS back in 2002 because their rules for disability accommodations allowed my hostile guidance counselor to give me the SAT at literally any time or place that he wanted to. Moreover, at present it currently takes six to twelve weeks for the ETS to review and approve testing accommodations, which puts an onerous burden on test takers with disabilities who are trying to meet deadlines. I already have a fine arts Masters degree with over a 3.7 GPA, so I deeply resent being obliged to cough up $200 to the ETS for my second masters, as inevitably as if I were paying my debt to the grim reaper. I agree that students should form some sort of movement aimed at vitiating the power of this organization and its glorified IQ tests.

Worst experience. Apparently we are not allowed to make mistakes with them. They have no mercy at all. No wonder why schools are not requiring GRE test anymore. I'm glad is happening. When I first registered I made a mistake of registering on the wrong date. I realized...

Nope.

I could not agree more. I have been met with failure 5 times on this exam ($90 each time) . The official ETS guide is not accurate to the real exam. As an adult who has a high school diploma, an associates degree, and is almost complete in a bachelors it is very...

Plus, the test prep material is a scam in itself! You can only access it ten times?

I felt the test prep did not reflect the test.

There is also little feedback to help you improve. The math is ridiculous, why would I have to solve complex problems in under a minute for a grade I am not licensed to teach in?

Praxis Core is a scam! It's all about money. These tests are impossible. Do not and I repeat DO NOT buy the practice test from ETS, they help with NOTHING. I know many education majors who dropped because our college demands we pass these exams. The Praxis is aligned...

I totally agree!

I thought it was against the law for there to be a monopoly in the US.

I have had take five different Praxis test to get my license. I have paid them over $2,000, plus lost time at work.

ETS and the GRE were the ONLY things keeping me out of a Ph.D. program. The test is not relevant to anything whatsoever and they make it incredibly difficult to get disabilities accommodations. I don't understand how practically all colleges support this obvious monopoly scam.

I've been saying the same thing! I'd love to go to a lawyer if I had some solid proof.

I know this is a scam. I know too many smart people, including myself, who can't pass that *** math test.

Miss it by just a handful of points every time!

I am frustrated by the arbitrary questions on the test. I would love for there to be an expose on ETS and their shameful practices.

I wish our board of education realizes what a boondoggle this is. I bet most teachers couldn't pass it.

I tired of paying for overpriced tests! Why so expensive?

ETS needs to pay my fiance'

My fiance has been working weekend testing sessions for ETS (Educational Tesing Service) in Ewing/Princeton NJ for a few years, he worked a October/November session and he still has not recieved a pay check from that time period, (they gave him a lame excuse that Hurricane Sandy is the reason he is not being paid.) He hasnt gotten his check from working a May/June test session either...I'm sure all the full-time Ewing, NJ employees have gotten paid. Hurricane Sandy my ***....pay him or hear from the BBB!!!!!!!!!!!!! this didnt happen when Mrs. Janet Byard ran payroll for the program.

Why don't you just do what anyone else would do? Report it to the state labor board.

The BBB can't help you. Doesn't sound legit.
