What is TEXES Exam?

TEXES stands for “TEXAS Examinations of Educator Standards”. The TEXES Exam is a requirement for any individual who wants to teach in a public school within the “Texas” state. This test was made necessary in the U.S when many leaders and politicians came to a conclusion that there were a lot of unqualified teachers present in the country. Hence, as a reform to that situation various tests were made compulsory in different states, TEXES exam being one of them for the Texas state. Once an individual passes the TEXES exam he/she is considered to have the potential to teach in the subjects that they have mastered in. The test includes a set of multiple choice questions and even essays depending on the subjects selected by the candidate. The exam is 5 hours long and is broken down in sections.


There isn't any qualification that is needed to take the test, if anyone thinks of teaching as their career in the state of Texas and wants to pursue it then this test is for them.
