The Program Menu is the gateway to the Study Mode and Exam Mode practice exams, flashcards, exam tips, book references, full description of the competencies and all the other features.
The Welcome screen highlights the domains of the TExES exam in focus; the number of competencies it measures; some of the main features offered by the simulation software and the guidelines followed for its development.
You can save and exit an exam at any time. You can resume the exam where you left off from this screen by clicking the Load Saved Exam button. Once you score an exam it is stored away. You can gauge your progress over time by comparing your scores and reviewing details of earlier submissions stored in Exam History.
This snapshot shows the Exam History feature in detail. It shows the results of a test taker that submitted to three practice exams; failing on the first try with a 201 score and succeeding the next two attempts with scores of 261 and 297 – in the TExES the minimum passing score is 240 and the maximum score is 300. This test taker can review all the questions in those exams by clicking the Details button.
Use the software in Exam Mode, for example, to tackle our tough, randomized exams that depict the real exam both in degree of difficulty and types of questions. Just as in the real exam you are allowed five hours to complete a practice simulation exam.
However, this software is a study tool and for this reason we have added features to make your studying time more effective. To momentarily stop the exam and resume the test at your discretion you can save the exam by clicking the Save & Exit button at any time and resume it whenever you like by loading your saved exam with the click of a mouse. The software is smart enough to load back your answers, restore the clock to the time remaining and resume the test. Above is a snapshot of the practice exam running in Exam Mode.
TestSim® approximates the real test environment to provide you with an accurate representation of the Texas Examination for Educator Standards (TExES) test. Above is a snapshot of the software running in Study Mode.
Fully understand the material. Detailed explanation and rational are provided for each answer choice along with references to additional sources in the Explanation Section of the software. With the click of a mouse you can quickly access the full description of any competency measured by a question. Above is a snapshot of the software running in Exam Mode showing the Explanation Section to a question. Notice the level of detail used to explain the rationale behind every answer choice.
If you still have time remaining on the test, you can review your answers before submitting it to automated scoring.
Upon completing a test in Exam Mode the software gives you a score report showing a graphical display of your test score with a breakdown of scores by competencies.
If you wish you can send your score results via e-mail or fax to your instructors so they can monitor your progress as you attempt to pass our tough simulated exams while building your confidence for the real test.

Flashcards, a built-in feature of the software, will drill you on your knowledge of the fundamentals and key educational concepts with hundreds of questions that may be arranged into customized and random quizzes.
