What are TExES Tests?

Formally known as the Texas Examination of Educator Standards tests, TExES exams determine whether aspiring educators are indeed fit for classroom leadership. Of course, teachers aren't the only professionals who must pass TExES tests before working as professional educators. School principals, school library media specialists, counselors and administrators are all subject to TExES testing requirements. Ultimately an assessment of what educators know and how they plan to share the information with students, the TExES tests shouldn't be underestimated. TExES practice exams can help examinees better understand what the test has in store for them on exam day.

Who Should Take TExES Tests?

If you hope to work as a teacher or educator in a Texas public school, you'll likely need to take and pass a TExES test. While requirements vary from district to district, most teachers will take at least one TExES exam in pursuit of their teaching license. To register, you'll need to complete a four-year degree in an education-related teaching program. Those who already possess Texas teaching licenses may sign up for the TExES exam of their choice. No matter which version of the exam you register for, make sure to incorporate practice tests into your TExES exam prep.

Passing Scores on TExES Tests

Generally, you'll need to earn a score of 240 points or higher to pass TExES exams. Fail to earn a passing score on your first attempt and you'll be forced to retake the exam at a 45-day delay. This lengthy waiting period can derail even the most promising of teaching careers. To save valuable time and registration fees, be sure to invest your time and energy wisely. TExES test prep requires serious studying. By incorporating plenty of TExES practice tests into your study routine, you'll be better prepared for the format, pacing, and content knowledge required on the day of the real exam.

How to Prepare for Your TExES Test

Studies repeatedly demonstrate the power of practice testing. By mimicking the timing and content found on the real TExES exam, practice tests put examinees through the wringer – in the best way possible. To know where you're going, you need to know where you've been and what you already know. Identifying blind spots in your knowledge is the best way to begin studying for an important exam like the TExES. TExES exam practice tests are the ideal way to practice your pacing and ensure you're studying the right content ahead of your test date.
