Health and Human Performance


For Kinesiology & Sports Studies students in the Physical Education Teacher Education (PETE) Concentration:

The purpose of the examinations is to ensure the educator has the necessary content and professional knowledge to perform satisfactorily in Texas public schools. The tests are criterion-referenced multiple-choice examinations designed to measure a candidate's knowledge in relation to an established standard of competence rather than to the performance of other candidates.

Registration will not be allowed without academic department approval. Examinees who are completing requirements for certification through an educator preparation program will be required by their program to complete additional requirements established by the program before authorization to retest is granted. You may not register to take the same test more than once on the same day.

To register for the test, visit the Educator Certification website.
