Open Education Project Proposal:
Students in Studies Education must take Praxis II for teacher certification exam and will create an open access study guide. Students will create a comprehensive study guide that addresses the targets set forth in the Praxis II information booklet for the Social Studies certification exam. Initially, this will be measured against the Praxis II test specifications. Over time, we can use data provided to PSU regarding student performance on Praxis II. Additionally, Students will co-create the syllabus with the instructor.
