Test Preparation

The Texas Education Agency requires that each teacher candidate pass a subject-specific certification exam to teach within that subject area. If you need guidance or preparation for a TExES Exam or for a Pre-Admission Content Test (PACT), ECP can help with our TExES review courses. 

TExES Review Courses

The TExES review courses are for anyone in the state of Texas who is looking for preparation for the TExES exams. They are self-guided and self-paced online courses. They will help you in preparing the TExES Exams or for Pre-Admission Content Tests (PACT). Each of our online courses is aligned to the corresponding TExES exam standards and provides TEKS-based content knowledge in the subject areas. All courses include a diagnostic test with test item feedback for correct and incorrect responses. These courses are available for you to access immediately following registration, this allows you to choose from a number of TExES exam test dates that best fits your schedule. 

For those applying to our ACA Program or CTE certification programs, we offer a 50% discount on these courses once you have paid the $100 application fee. Please call our office for the promotional code.
