FAQ - TExES History 8-12 Practice Test

You've made the decision to pursue a career in teaching and learn that something called the TExES is required before you can become certified. Or perhaps you have your teaching certificate and want to obtain your Master Teacher Certificate and discover the TExMaT is the key. What are the TExES and the TExMaT?

What is the TExES Series of Tests?

The Texas Examinations of Educator Standards (TExES) are designed to ensure that newly certified teachers possess the necessary knowledge and skill levels of an entry level teacher in the Texas public school system. They are based on the state-required curriculum for students, the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS).

The TExES are computer-administered, criterion-referenced exams. That is, they measure scores in relation to established criterion rather than compared to others' performance on the test. All tests contain self-selected response questions (multiple-choice) while some may include essay-type or oral responses.

TExES Subject Area Examinations

While the specific exams required differ by subject area, generally the Pedagogy and Professional Responsibilities (PPR) along with one or more of the required content area exams is necessary. Each exam is divided into domains which are further broken down into more specific competencies within each domain. Detailed manuals for each field of certification exam are available at www.tx.nesinc.com under “Prepare”. Here you will find manuals that will familiarize you with the domains and competencies to be tested, question formats, and study resources.

Texas Examinations for Master Teachers (TExMaT)

The Texas Examinations for Master Teachers (TExMaT) determine a candidate's ability to perform as mentor to other teachers as well as to fulfill regular teaching responsibilities. A Texas teaching certificate and at least three years minimum teaching experience is required to take the TExMaT. Successful performance will result in a Master Teacher Certificate.

There are four areas in which a Master Teacher Certificate can be earned: Reading, Math, Science, and Technology. The Reading, Math, and Science assessments each span 5 hours and include selected response questions as well as a case study with a constructed response task. The Reading exam covers Early Childhood through grade 12, while the Math and Science exams are offered in three levels (Early Childhood through grade 4, grade 4 through grade 8, and grade 8 through grade 12). The Master Technology Teacher exam consists of a selected response section, a case study with a constructed response task, and two performance assessments.

5 Testimonial(s) for

TExES History 8-12 Test Prep


Thanks so much!!! I would not have been able to get through this without the help I got from your TExES History 8-12 practice exams. I always panic when go to take exams, but after taking all of your practice exams, I was relaxed and focused when it came time to take the actual exam. I can not thank you enough!


I just want to say thank you! I passed my TExES History 8-12 exam yesterday, and it was my first attempt. Your practice tests helped tremendously and were invaluable to my studying. The questions were very similar to the real thing, and because of that, I felt extremely confident in passing the test. Thanks again!

Christina O.,

I wanted to take a moment to thank you for helping me pass the TExES History 8-12 . It has been 27 years since I have been in school and to say I was a little "rusty" is an understatement. I originally purchased the first 10 test as I had a tight window to learn the subject matter before I took the test so I needed the most efficient way to cover the material. Because the first ten test were so helpful, I purchased the remaining 5 test later. I firmly believe the subject matter covered in these "practice" test" helped me score 20-30 points higher than I would have without them so could I have passed without it - possibly but it felt great to score much more than the minimum needed. Changing career paths is never easy but thanks to you I can now begin my new adventure.


Dear Exam Edge, I just took the TExES History 8-12 Tests two days ago. I decided to take all four on the same day and was a little nervous. I used your practice tests to study and guess what? Not only did I pass ALL of the tests, I scored a perfect score on the exam!!! Thank you for your program, it really works!!!!

Liz W.,

Hi team, thank you so much , I took my board exam yesterday and passed. I had tried a few times and failed but your exam content provided me with the knowledge and test taking ability to get the job done. Thanks again will definitely recommend this site to my friends. Thank god when I found you on the internet if I did not past this exam I would have lost my job. Happy holidays to your team. Esmie New York

Structured Test Preparation for your TExES History 8-12 Certification

Throwing Darts

Preparing for your TExES History 8-12 certification exam does not need to be like throwing darts at the wall blindfolded. Let Exam Edge guide you through the study process. Our industry-leading approach simplifies the process of getting you prepared to pass your exam. Combine the study skills you've picked up over your lifetime and add in our helpful certification practice tests and you've got a combination that can't be beat.

One of the most difficult aspects of standardized testing is time management. Even with a watch on your wrist, getting into a rhythm of answering questions on a limited time basis can be incredibly difficult. Allow Exam Edge to help. Just like the real certification exam, our prep tests are timed. However, one advantage of our practice exams is that you can pause the test and come back to it later. It will resume at the same point where you left off, and with the correct amount of time remaining. This will help you to build up your stamina and speed as you gain familiarity with the test format.

After you complete one of our practice tests, we'll let you know how many questions you answered correctly. We will also estimate the score you would be close to on the actual exam, so you'll know how much more practice you need. These test results can help you create a comprehensive study guide that focuses on your weak areas. Practice tests online offer this unique insight in ways other forms of studying cannot. As helpful as your notes might be, when was the last time your scribbles directed you to the exact problem areas in which you need extra help? Bring your study strategies into the 21st century with Exam Edge.

You're in Control!

Our unique exam practice test environment is the closest thing you will find to the actual test, with one exception: We tell you when you're right and when you're wrong, and most importantly we explain why! Our tests provide you with step-by-step explanations in an easy to understand format.

We realize that everyone likes to study differently, so we give you three different ways to take your exams:

Timed - Timed tests are just like the actual certification exam. They help you feel the pressure of completing the exam in a defined timeframe. The system defaults the test time to the same time limit per question as the actual exam.

No Time Limit - With this option, you can take your time and sit back and think about the question before answering, without being rushed.

Explanation - When you run our online practice tests in explanation mode, they act as your Study Guide because you have the option to see the answers as you take the test. Study Guide mode is an effective way to review the test materials before you take the exam in a timed format.

Remember, standardized tests are not simply an examination of your knowledge of the subject matter. They are also testing your ability to perform well under pressure. All the studying in the world can't prepare you for what it will be like to actually sit for the test. Get the test-taking experience you need to perform well under pressure. By taking exam practice tests through Exam Edge, you'll gain the confidence necessary to stay calm on the day of the real test.

There's a lot riding on the results of your test, especially if it's the only thing standing between you and a certification. Take our certification practice tests and walk into the actual test with your head held high!
