Important Updates

Texas Educator Certification Program Tests
The test list under Resources shows test names, test codes, test formats, test dates and important administration notes for all TExES, TExMaT and TASC/TASC-ASL tests offered. This list is updated periodically, as necessary. If you have printed and posted copies of this list, check the "Updated" date on your copy and the one on this website to make sure you have the most up-to-date information.

Retaking a CAT Test
Test takers who want to retake a CAT test must wait 45 days before they can retake the same test via computer. If they reregister before 45 days, the registration system will only display test dates 45 days or more after the previous CAT test date.
