Selecting a Test Session

With the exception of the Core Subjects tests, all TExES test sessions are five hours in length. See TExES Tests Offered for testing times for the Core Subjects tests. On any given testing day, you may take up to two different tests, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. When you register for a test, you may select a morning or an afternoon test session (if available at the chosen test center). NOTE: The paper-based TExES Braille test is offered only in the morning session. Please note the following restrictions:

  • You cannot take the same test twice on the same day.
  • Some test centers do not offer sessions in both the morning and afternoon.
  • If you register and select a test session and then make subsequent changes to your test and/or test center selection(s), you will be required to pick from the sessions that are available at the test center at the time of the change.
  • The session you select at registration cannot be modified on the day of the test.
