TExMaT Preparation Manuals

These test preparation manuals are designed to help you prepare for the TExMaT test in the field in which you are seeking certification as a Master Teacher. Their purpose is to familiarize you with the competencies to be tested, test question formats and pertinent study resources. EPP staff may also find this information useful as they help their students prepare for careers as Texas educators.

If you have a disability or health-related need and require test preparation materials in an alternate format, contact ETS Disability Services. ETS is committed to producing alternate formats (e.g., braille, recorded audio, reader's script, large print) as quickly as possible. Production times vary.

Test Preparation Manuals may not be reproduced for commercial use but may be copied for educational purposes. The Texas Education Agency (TEA) and the State Board for Educator Certification (SBEC) would appreciate credit for the material used and a copy of the reprint.
