Praxis Study Guides
The descriptive information about the Core Academic Skills for Educators: Writing section of the Praxis Core includes the expectation that students will be able to "recognize information relevant to a particular research task".
The sample questions & exercises in various Praxis study guides indicate that students should be able to:
- Determine whether a source or a piece of information is directly relevant to a research topic
- Recognize the difference between primary & secondary sources
- A simple definition from Praxis Core for Dummies:
- "A primary source represents original research"
- "A secondary source contains information already compiled by someone else"
