TExES Qualifier: 103 Bilingual Generalist EC-4

THE TExES QUALIFIER IS NOT THE TExES CERTIFICATION EXAMINATION.

The Texas Examinations of Educator Standards (TExES) is the new certification examination program. In the fall of 2002, the State Board for Educator Certification (SBEC) implemented a new teacher certification examination program that will, over the next few years, supplant the Examination for the Certification of Educators in Texas (ExCET), which has been the state`s teacher certification exam since 1986.

These practice tests are qualifying TExES examinations. You must pass a qualifying TExES with a score of 240 (75% before January 1, 2005) in order to receive a barcode for the official TExES. After you pass this exam, you must follow the guidelines for registering for the official TExES posted on the College of Education Certification page.

For preparation materials for the TExES, please visit TExES website at http://www.texes.ets.org/texes/prepMaterials/

If you have a question about any of the TExES qualifying exams, please call the State Board of Educator Certification (SBEC), Office of Accountability at (512) 238-3200.

The registration of TExES Qualifier is available online at http://testing.las.uh.edu. You may also register in person in Room 204 Student Service Center 1 at least 48 hours before the scheduled test time and date.
