Before taking the actual state exams, you must first take the corresponding practice test. Those seeking certification in areas without a practice test must receive approval from their academic advisor before taking the actual exam. Admission to the Teacher Education Program is required to receive authorization to test.
TWU’s Office of Lifelong Learning administers the TExES representative forms, otherwise known as practice exams, once each month. The schedule of testing dates is available in Student Support Services and on the Lifelong Learning web page, where you may also register. The website is www.twu.edu/ce. Admission to the Teacher Education Program is not required before attempting the practice tests.
- Scores will be emailed within one week of the administration; score reports will be mailed within three weeks.
- Deadline for registration is noon the day before the test date.
- Check with Lifelong Learning for current test fee. No refunds will be given once the test has been administered.
- Contact your advisor about practice tests for certification areas not offered through Lifelong Learning.
TExES Success Plan
If you take the content-area or PPR practice exams twice without making a score of at least 75, you must develop a Success Plan describing actions you will take to pass the exams before you can be approved to take the actual exam(s) or to student teach.
Registering for the TExES
To obtain an authorization to test, send an email request with your name, TWU student ID number and the name of the test you want to take to Linda Kobler or Brenda Wilson. Email requests for a test approval must be received by 2:00 p.m. on the registration deadline to obtain the approval by the day’s end. Once you’ve been approved, you’ll receive an email notification providing registration instructions. You must be admitted to the Teacher Education Program to be approved for an actual exam.
To register, go to www.texes.ets.org, select “Register” and follow the instructions provided. The Registration Bulletin on the ETS website will provide all the information you need to know about taking the TExES.
NOTE: An admission ticket is required each time you take a test. You may print your admission ticket from the online registration system
