How Do I Request TExES Exam Approval?
How to get started:
Beginning August 31, 2014, the TExES #192 EC-6 Bilingual Generalist exam will no longer be offered.
EC-6 Bilingual Generalist students will be required to pass the #191 EC-6 Generalist, #164 Bilingual Supplemental, #190 BTLPT, and #160 EC-12 PPR exams to be recommended for bilingual certification. The #192 EC-6 Bilingual Generalist TExES exam will be valid if certification requirements are met by August 15, 2015. The last day to recommend for certification will be October 30, 2015.
Beginning August 31, 2014, Passing Standards Change for EC-6 and 4-8 Generalist Exams
TExES Exams #191 EC-6 Generalist and #111 4-8 Generalist passing standards will change. Candidates must receive a pass status in all domains to receive an overall pass status for the exam.
Beginning September 1, 2011, all PPR Exams will be EC-12 only.
Tests #110 (Pedagogy and Professional Responsibilities 4-8), #130 (Pedagogy and Professional Responsibilities 8-12), and #194 (Pedagogy and Professional Responsibilities EC-6) were offered for the last time August 31, 2011. They can be used in certification applications which are submitted and recommended by October 30, 2014, with certificate requirements completed by August 31, 2014.
Beginning September 1, 2011, there will be increased security at all Test Sites:
Candidates will have a photograph taken at the Test Site

The information in both of these accounts must match or you will not be able to register for a TExES exam. It is your responsibility to keep this information updated. A current photo ID with correct name and information (matching your SBEC and ETS account information) will be required at the testing site.
