Welcome to TExES

TExES Information

Texas law requires every person seeking educator certification to perform satisfactorily on comprehensive examinations. These examinations ensure that each educator has the necessary content and professional knowledge to perform satisfactorily in Texas public schools. Texas Examinations of Educator Standards (TExES) were developed for this purpose.

Important Practice TExES Exam Information

Students registered with Disability Services who need accommodation for a Practice TExES exam must contact Disability Services at least one week prior to the test date.  All requests for accommodation must be reviewed and approved by Disability Services.

NEW: Remediation Policy for students retaking a state exam – TExES Remediation Policy

All EC-6 Bilingual Generalist certification students will be required to take the EC-6 Generalist Practice Test, the Bilingual Supplemental Practice Test, and attend a Generalist Review in order to be approved to register for the EC-6 Bilingual Generalist state exam.

Only EC-6 Bilingual Generalist students will be permitted to take both of these Practice tests during a Practice test session if the following conditions exist:

·  completion of the EC-6 Generalist Practice test

·  at least forty-five minutes prior to the conclusion of the Practice Test Session remains

There will not be an exception to these conditions.
