Texas Certification Exams

Texas law requires all individuals seeking educator certification to pass examinations in the areas which they seek certification. The purpose of these examinations is to ensure that each educator has the necessary academic content and professional knowledge to perform in Texas public schools. The Texas Examinations of Educator Standards (TExES) program was developed for this purpose.

IMPORTANT NOTE: UT Arlington students are allowed to take only one test per test date.

Students will not be allowed to miss class to take a TExES practice exam. It will be the student's responsibility to attend a practice test session that does not interfere with the student's class schedule.
