Now that you’ve learned about what’s on the Praxis Elementary Education: Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment Test, try your hand at a few Praxis Elementary Education practice questions.
B: Most children are reading by the end of second grade, so this student’s competence is cause for concern. Eliminate (A) and (C). However, retention (D) should be an option to consider only after all other options have been exhausted. (B) is the correct answer.
B: (B) is the correct answer because Carletta’s 4 ones, 2 tens, and 1 hundred map to the digits’ place values. Barbara’s manipulatives (A) represent 4 ones and 12 tens; this adds up to 124 but does not indicate place value notation. Jeanne’s manipulatives (D) represent 24 ones and 1 hundred; these values also sum to 124, but her choice of blocks does not indicate place value notation. Janice’s manipulatives (C) represent 4 hundreds, 2 tens, and 1 red for a total of 421.
C: Glasser’s control theory is about students having control of their learning environment, so choice (C) is correct. (A), (B), and (D) describe behaviors that are not included in the theory.
C: Instructional objectives must include measurable outcomes; understanding (A), learning (B), and enjoying (D) are not measurable. (C) is correct because one can measure whether students can identify three key outcomes of the Geneva Conventions and score the quality of their responses using a rubric.
