Texas Examinations of Educator Standards - TExES (formerly ExCET)
UT Tyler Testing Center
Texas requires every person seeking educator certification to perform satisfactorily on comprehensive examinations. These certification examinations are five hours each and are administered four times per year.
The MRT (Master Reading Teacher) program examination is given at the same times as the TExES exams. A master reading teacher is an individual who holds a Master Reading Teacher Certificate and whose primary duties are to teach reading and to serve as a reading mentor to other teachers.
This program will be followed by other master teacher areas of study in the near future.
