Praxis II exam
(Test code: 0361; Test name: "English to Speakers of Other Languages" [ESOL])

On 30 April 2011, I took the Praxis II exam, administered at the University of Southern Maine. The possible score range was 100-200, and I received a score of 168. The Maine State Department of Education requires a score of 144, and therefore I passed this exam in Maine. The Maryland State Depatment of Education requires a score of 149 on this exam, and therefore in Maryland as well I would be deemed to have passed this exam .

What follows is the detailed information on my exam results:
