The TExES exam assessment is required as part of the Texas teacher certification process. The goal of the assessment is to make sure that every first-year teacher possesses the needed skills and knows enough about his or her subject level in order to successfully work as an educator in a public school in Texas. This is a criterion-referenced assessment, which results in an account of how much the candidate knows compared to certain standards and objectives (instead of comparing one candidate to the average scores of other test-takers).
The complete TExES test score will be in the 100-300 range. The minimum passing score is 240. Candidates will also receive a report detailing their results on the main areas of the test(s). This data is beneficial in letting candidates evaluate strengths and weaknesses, and it may be used in order to study for repeated test-takings.
