Representative TExES Test (Practice Test)


Due to the high number of students scheduling exam appointments and not showing up, beginning Fall 2019 the TExES Teacher Practice Exam will have a $10.00 registration fee.  This fee is due when you register for your exam. 


Requirements

Must be a current A&M-SA student enrolled in courses.
Must be in Field Residency 1 or Field Residency 2, or have approval from the College of Education.
Students that have graduated may utilize the Testing Center for practice exams.

Registration

Registration will begin at the start of every semester.
Students are required to register at least 24 hours prior to their desired testing date.  Space is limited and registration is done on a first scheduled basis.
Students must schedule online and will receive a confirmation email immediately after registering.  Students will also receive an email reminding them of their test date, time, and location (if applicable).  
Students are required to arrive 30 minutes prior to their testing appointment for check-in.   
Students that do not arrive at least 30 minutes early will be considered late and turned away.
Students are not allowed to register for a retake of an exam until their scores have been released.  Students that register for the same exam on multiple dates before their score reports are released will be dropped from the latest testing date. 
Students are not allowed to take multiple exams on the same date.  The only exception to this will be students that need to retake 2 or more (but not the whole exam) of EC-6 core subjects or 4-8 core subjects.  Those students will indicate what sections they need with scheduling. 
Students should plan on 5 hours for each exam.  Exam time limits are set by TEA.
Students must use their Jaguar email address.  Failure to use the Jaguar email will result in an immediate cancallation of the test date without notification. 

Cancellation Policy

Students are required to cancel their exam at least 72 hours before their scheduled testing date.  This gives other students an opportunity to register for that testing date.
Students will be unable to schedule testing dates within 30 days of each other, this includes any no-showed exams, exams that were cancelled with less than 72 hours' notice, and exam retakes.
Students that no-show or cancel with less than 72 hour notice are not guaranteed another testing date due to limited space. 
No-show, late arrivals, and late cancelled exams will forfeit any paid fees
