Successful completion is defined as scoring 80% or better on the appropriate practice test. There is no cost to the student to take the practice test. Students may attempt the test as often as necessary to achieve success but must wait a minimum of one week between test attempts. Students who have not successfully completed the appropriate practice test(s) will not receive the authorization required for ExCET/TExES registration eligibility. Students must also successfully complete the appropriate practice test(s) to receive credit for student-teaching internships.
For more information on the practice tests or to register for a practice test, contact the School of Education office, Fleck Hall, 216, 512-448-8651.
