Praxis ParaPro Video Overviews
For a quick look at a few ParaPro practice questions, try this short video:
While not specific to the ParaPro, these playlists cover several reading and math topics that are likely to be covered on the ParaPro:
First Thing to Know
The Praxis® ParaPro exam is used by schools nationwide to assess the strengths of paraprofessionals in the areas of math, reading, and writing. It also allows the test-taker to demonstrate their ability to use this knowledge in a classroom setting.
The identification number for the Praxis® ParaPro is 1775. Every exam is assigned a somewhat random number that is used for record-keeping. Many of the tests have similar names, so every test has been assigned a number to avoid any confusion. This identification number can also help you make sure that you are registering for the right test and studying the right material.
ParaPro Exam Breakdown
The Praxis® ParaPro consists of 90 multiple-choice questions. The test mixes all the questions together and test-takers have 2½ hours to complete the exam. If you would like to retake the test, you must wait 21 days from the prior administration to take it again.
What is a Passing Score
There isn’t a definitive passing score for this exam. Some school districts and states set their own passing rate, while others only use this as information to help them understand the best placement for each paraprofessional. Check here for additional information on passing scores based on states or school districts.
How to Register
Registering for the test is based entirely upon the location in which you test. To register, contact the testing facility directly. Depending on the state, a school district, college, or testing center will offer the exam. Follow this link to find a location near you: ParaPro Testing Locations.

Runner-Up for Practice Test
ETS Interactive Practice Test
ETS, the company responsible for the Praxis® ParaPro, has published a paid practice test online. It is interactive and is the length of the real test. The only catch is that there is only one test offered, so once you’ve taken it, there isn’t anything else for you to do except review the same questions.
Union Test Prep
Union Test Prep offers free practice exams in each of the three subjects. You answer a question, and after confirming your answer, the test lets you know whether the answer is correct. If the answer is incorrect, you may choose to answer it again or skip directly to the explanation. There are a lot of ads on this site that are designed to look like the website, so it gets confusing at times.

Runner-Up for Study Guide
Union Test Prep
Union Test Prep offers a free online study guide that covers the topics on the test. It is quite lengthy and not tailored to individual users, but it does cover everything. Being free, the website also includes large, distracting ads, but it does offer sample questions and quality information about the test. The site provides examples and shows how to solve them in the math section, but the reading and writing sections provide only basic information.
Study.com has a paid study guide for the Praxis® ParaPro for $59.99 per month. It has a lot of information. If you feel very unprepared for this exam, this might be the right study guide for you. However, if you just need to brush up on some topics, this guide will probably be too much information for you. With 120 lessons and seven minutes per lesson, it will take you over 14 hours to get through the material. Study.com also uses mainly video lessons, which may or may not fit your learning style.
