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 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.

I had been using other questions and study materials for a few weeks but felt like it was making me even more confused and frustrated. I bought your exam bundle and after using your questions to study I passed my TExES Social Studies 8-12 on the first try!! I was the first one from my unit to take the test and pass. Thank you!

Amanda S.,

Exam Edge was truly a wonderful resource for me. After taking the TExES Social Studies 8-12 Exam several times, I finally passed it after the use of the Exam Edge practice tests. The explanations were great and gave me the confidence that I needed to pass. I will use this resource again for future exams as well as refer my friends.
