BETHANY EDUCATION MAJORS RECEIVE DISTINCTION ON PRAXIS II TEST

BETHANY, W.Va. – Five Bethany College Senior Education majors recently received distinction on their Praxis II test. Individuals entering the teaching profession take these tests as part of the teacher licensing and certification process required by many states. A number of professional associations and organizations require these tests as one criterion for professional licensing decisions.

Bethany students receiving distinction are:

Jennifer Anderson of Bellaire, Ohio.

Ashley Hovanic of Cortland, Ohio.

Stacy Slack of Bulgar, Pa.

Jennifer Treherne of Salesville, Ohio.

Monica Wootton of Prosperity, Pa.

Keely Camden, Bethany College Assistant Professor of Education, said, "Our Education faculty are thrilled to have so many students achieve distinction on Praxis II. This honor reflects the hard work and achievements of our students and program."

The Praxis II tests are subject assessment tests that measure knowledge of specific subjects that K-12 educators will teach, as well as general subject-specific teaching skills and knowledge.
