Who Can Access the Administrator Section?
EPPs that are given authorization by the Texas Education Agency (TEA) can access the Administrator section to review information regarding test takers who are registered to test.

EPP administrators can:

  • view a list of candidates registered for testing on a real-time basis
  • access reports (roster reports, score reports, summary reports, etc.)*
  • order Representative Tests

To obtain authorization to access this section, see the instructions under New Users. If you already have authorization and have a user name and password, you may go directly to login as an existing user.

*Inappropriate Uses of the Texas Examinations of Educator Standards™ (TExES™), Texas Examinations for Master Teachers™ (TExMaT™), Texas Assessment of Sign Communication™ (TASC™) and Texas Assessment of Sign Communication-American Sign Language™ (TASC-ASL™) Assessments

Proper assessment use is defined as acceptability of the intended use combined with evidence to support the intended uses. Two specific examples of misuse are listed below but are not inclusive of all possible instances of misuse.

  • Employment Selection or Hiring. ETS believes it is inappropriate for a state, district, school or other local education agency to differentiate among educators who have all met or exceeded the state’s passing score for purposes of making a selection or hiring decision. These assessments were designed and intended to be used for credentialing, not for rank-ordering educators or for making decisions that otherwise presume a predictive relationship between performance on these assessments and performance on the job.
  • Employment-Based Decisions Affecting Fully Licensed and Employed Educators. ETS defines a fully licensed educator as one who has met all state licensure requirements and, therefore, is not practicing under a probationary, emergency or provisional license. Because these assessments were designed and intended to be used for credentialing, ETS believes it is inappropriate for school districts or other local agencies to use the assessment scores for terminating fully licensed educators, determining salaries, promoting or demoting educators or completing performance appraisals/evaluations.
