TExES CAT Tests Offered

All TExES tests, with the exception of the Braille PBT test, are administered as CAT tests at specially equipped test centers. Some CAT tests are offered on a continuous basis while others are offered only during limited-administration windows. Almost all TExES CAT tests consist entirely of multiple-choice/selected-response questions. However, some limited-administration tests also contain a constructed-response section with questions that require you to produce a response that is either written, typed or spoken.
