If you are an Elementary Education major (PreK-3, EC-6, or 4-8 grades), you have very specific remediation steps you must complete to obtain retest approval.

In addition to the Request to Retest form, you will need to carefully follow the Elementary Request to Retake Remediation Plan (see the complete plan included below).  If you have any questions concerning the retest process, you must contact your assigned faculty mentor.  If you do not know who you have been assigned to, contact Ms. Jones in Curriculum & Instruction at either [email protected] or 254-968-9097.  Educator Preparation Services will NOT be able to tell you who you have been assigned to.

Included Below is the Complete Elementary (Grades EC-6 and 4-8) Request to Retest Remediation Plan

In order to receive permission to retest, you will need to carefully read, follow, and complete the remediation items listed below related to the specific retest attempt you are requesting. If you are requesting permission to retake more than one exam, you must complete an individual remediation plan for each separate exam. Once you complete and document the required remediation tasks, you will submit the documentation along with all other required forms to a Google Form. Please note that it can take 5-7 working days for testing permission to be given after you submit all forms. If you are requesting permission to retake the EC-6 Core Subjects exam, you will complete separate remediation tasks for each subject still needed.  Once submitted, you will need to monitor your Pearson testing account for entered retest approvals.

If you are unsure of who your assigned faculty mentor is, you will need to contact your academic department for that information and NOT Educator Preparation Services.

First Request to RetestTake a 240 tutoring practice test and score 90% or better in each domain area on a single attempt. For EC-6 Core Subjects only, you will need 90% overall in each subject area.  The date of the practice test must be dated after your last TExES exam attempt.   Contact assigned faculty mentor for study resources and testing tips and attend a scheduled remediation session and/or complete remediation as directed by your faculty mentor.  Fill out the Remediation Confirmation Form and have your mentor sign it. * For STR, you must spend an hour in the STR Canvas Community for each competency in which you scored less than 50%.
