If you have taken a Praxis II® test and are certified in a state other than Texas, you must have your credentials reviewed by the Texas Education Agency (TEA). See information on having your credentials reviewed.

Entrance into an Educator Preparation Program (EPP) in Texas

If you live in Texas, Arkansas, Louisiana, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Puerto Rico or Mexico, you can take PACT through the Texas Examinations of Educator Standards™ (TExES™) program if the tests you wish to take are offered in your area.

If the tests you wish to take are not offered through the TExES program or you do not live in an area where TExES tests are offered, certain Praxis II® tests can be taken. See the list of tests below.
