How do I request test approval (i.e., PACT) to enter an educator preparation program?

Pre-Admission Content Test (PACT) candidates will take a new series of exams beginning January 27, 2020. Applicants enrolling in a preparation program that requires a PACT exam must complete a passing score on the appropriate new content certification examination that corresponds with each certificate area. The PACT Transition flyer provides additional information and answers to frequently asked questions.

You must know your TEA ID to set up your testing account. If you are registering for the first time, you must click "ECOS for Educators" on the top toolbar and create a TEA Login (TEAL) account. When you create your account, you will complete an Educator Profile and obtain a TEA ID number. Once you have obtained a TEA ID number, go to the online registration system for the testing vendor. Be sure to enter your full name exactly as it appears on your ID. For help with TEAL account access, please submit a request to TEAL Access through the TEA Help Desk

Additional information can be found on the TEA Pre-Admission Content Test webpage.
