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 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.
