Texas Educator Certification Examination Program (TExES)

The TExES is a criterion-referenced examination designed to measure a teacher candidate’s knowledge in relation to an established criterion rather than to the performance of other candidates. The TExES Educator Standards, based on the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS), form the foundation for the TExES tests.
