The James Madison University Praxis and RVE testing site is located in the Assessment & Testing Center (formerly known as the Ashby Lab) in the basement of the Ashby Residence Hall. It can be accessed through a small entry door on the ground floor to the right of the main hall steps. 

We offer testing on Saturdays monthly. Please remember that not all tests are offered on all testing dates. Go to the ETS website for further information and to register at Questions? Contact Rabia Lieber at or 540-568-3881.

Start time of the testing is 10:00 am. However, you are required to report to the test center 30 minutes prior to the start time for check in. You may report up to 60 minutes prior to the start time and begin your testing immediately after check in.
