The TExES tests are criterion-referenced examinations designed to measure a candidate's knowledge in relation to an established criterion rather than to the performance of other candidates. All of the tests in the TExES program contain multiple-choice/selected-response questions. Some tests also have additional types of constructed-response questions (e.g., open-ended written or oral responses).
