Description:  The administrators of the Teacher2Teacher service have recently learned that this conversation potentially infringed upon the copyright of ETS, which administers the Praxis exam. Our understanding of ETS's policy is that any posting of material very similar to questions on the test is considered copyright infringement. In particular, memorizing and publicly sharing test items, whether done innocently or on purpose, is considered copyright infringement. Discussion of general content (e.g., general geometry principles or "make sure you remember the Pythagorean theorem ...") does not constitute infringement. We also understand that ETS takes this very seriously, since the sharing of test items intended for use on later tests could impact the value of those tests. In light of this potential infringement, the T2T administrators have removed all posts that explicitly discussed material from Praxis exams, and posts that referred to such posts. At the author's request, we've also removed posts that referenced, by name, a discussant who raised our attention to the potential infringement. To obtain permission to reproduce content authored by ETS, please complete the relevant licensing permission form by visiting ets.org, clicking on the link to "Legal" toward the bottom of their home page, then choosing from the left-hand navbar the appropriate "Related Links."
