How do I prepare for the TExES?

You should not attempt the TExES test until you're scoring 90% or higher in at least 3 Certify Teacher full-length practice exams within 2 weeks of the official test date. Turn the Study Plan Tracker feature, in your Certify Teacher test prep, on and follow the recommendations of this Study Plan to complete assignments that target content you were found to be deficient and need improvement.

In addition, read the explanatory commentaries for all answer choices, including the rationales that explain the incorrect answers because these commentaries may explain a skill or clarify knowledge that will answer a question in the real exam. Take advantage of all the resources available to you in the Certify Teacher test prep so you can take the real TExES exam with confidence and be successful in it.

How is the TExES scored?

Scoring TExES exams sometimes involve scoring both selected- response and constructed-response questions, each with its own scoring scale. Selected-response questions are scored by computer on a scale from 100-300, with 100 being a 0% correct score and 300 being a 100% correct perfect score.

Constructed-response questions are scored by education professionals in the appropriate content area on a scale of 0 to 4, with 4 being the highest score. The score is converted to be reported on the 100-300 scale and added to the selected response score to show a final score for the exam. The minimum passing score is 240 for the TExES exams.

Is the TExES test hard?

Educational background, familiarity with the material, test- taking skills, and overall preparation are some of the many factors to consider in predicting how hard a given TExES test is for any specific person. Add to that the fact that there are over 55 different TExES tests.

Although some test-takers may breeze through one or more of these exams, many will find at least some of them challenging. Pass rate report data available for TExES tests taken in the academic year of 2021-2022 indicates that only 72% of test takers, on average, passed their tests the first time they took the exam.

Before retaking a TExES exam

Before retaking a TExES exam, identify what went wrong in the original exam. Did you run out of time to revise? Did stress get the best of you in the exam room? Examine your score report and identify the content categories you scored low.

Certify Teacher test prep approximates the environment of the real TExES test with similar interface, navigation, time, prompts, settings, question formats, question types, and content. Certify Teacher full-length practice tests mimic the real TExES exam and can help you pass your retake. Here’s what you get: lots of practice with applying knowledge and skills relevant to your certification area, a Study Plan that outlines your weak areas, and a solution to help you master content on which you need improvement. We’ve got the tools to help you succeed. Get comfortable with the test before you take the real thing. Let us help you.

Who can take a TExES test?

To be eligible for Texas teacher certification, candidates must complete a TEA-approved educator preparation program (EPP) and hold at least a bachelor's degree from an institution accredited by an agency recognized by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB). The traditional path for earning a teaching certificate in Texas as an undergraduate includes:

  • Completing a bachelor's degree with a teacher preparation component.
  • Passing the required teacher certification exams.
  • Applying for a teaching certificate or license.

There are alternative pathways for those who have a bachelor's degree outside of education. There are educator preparation programs (EPP) that offer alternative pathways to certification for both classroom and administrative positions. These EPP programs can streamline a career change to classroom teaching if you have a bachelor's degree. Alternative certification programs can commonly be completed in one year as a post-graduate certificate.

What if I don't pass my TExES test?

If you are unable to pass your TExES exam on your first attempt, you may retake the exam 4 more times for a total of 5 attempts per exam. An exam can be retaken after 30 days from the date of the last attempt. If your exam is made up of subject subsets like the Core Subjects EC-6 and you did not pass one or more of the subsets, you are eligible to retake only the subset(s) you did not pass instead of retaking the whole exam.

If you are unable to successfully pass the examination after five attempts, you will not be allowed to take the examination again unless the Texas Education Agency approves a test-limit waiver. However, before you can apply to this waiver to attempt the exam a sixth time you must satisfy the waiver requirements. Click this link to download the waiver application. Section D of the waiver applies to all TExES exams and determines the number of clock hours of educational activity you must complete before you can submit the waiver application to be approved by TEA. Click this link for help filling out the waiver application.

Once you have determined the number of clock-hours, the next step is to look for educational activities that will provide you with the knowledge and skills you need, based on your Deficit Competency Analysis, to be successful on your waiver attempt. But you need to look no further because Certify Teacher is a TEA- Approved CPE provider and will be able to help you with meeting this requirement of your waiver application successfully.
