    Just wondering if anyone may have passed the EC-4 Generalist with 66 out of 100? I think I am borderline for pass or fail and I would really like to know if anyone has any advice?

    Let's see what the Texans say... If the scoring on this test parallels what one sees in other states, it wouldn't make sense to start celebrating yet, but it wouldn't make sense to be giving up, either.

    Did you pass? I just received a 68 on Friday and am very nervous! Does anyone know of a pass with a 68? Thanks, Sheri

    I know that the "average" is 70 - but I also know that they weight/scale the answer choices. So, if you didn't do particularly well in one section, another section might have made up for it.

    You'll just have to wait and see your score, because one person who passed with a 68 might have hit all the right scaled areas.

    Thanks! I know that I either barely flunked or barely passed, which I'm not very proud of. I did notice that 2 other people who received 71's were scored at 252 and 253. So, I'm hoping that I had the same version as them!

    Thanks again! Sheri

    Try framing it differently, fratbrats: should it come to that, you're probably in very good shape for next time.

    Thanks! If I have to take it again, it won't be until August 5th. By then, I'll actually have been through my summer training which is supposed to help prep you for the exam. I was under the impression this exam needed to be completed prior to the training. My degree is not in Education and I used study guides to prepare. Now, I have more of an idea of what to study. Take care, Sheri

    teachme2-

    I got the same score as you. Would you mind sending me a private message with the breakdown?? I am extremely nervous because my alt cert advisor told me I passed so I was very excited and now they are telling me I will have to wait for the scores to come in. It's killing me =0)

    Thanks!

    Tamikia

    Hello Tamikia,

    I had a close score to Teachme2. I received a 68 and somehow they calculated that as a 247. I was just hoping for a 240 of course. Anything to not take the test again. This is how my breakdown went. English Language-26, Math-9, Social Studies-10, Science-12, Fine Arts etc.-11. Good luck. I took the test on Friday afternoon and they emailed me letting me know my score was in by Monday afternoon. Thank goodness. Last weekend was pretty stressful. Good luck. I hope you passed, too.

    Sheri

    Congratulations, tnmuzicgirl! Don't forget to celebrate your accomplishment. (That's "celebrate" AND "your accomplishment": nobody passes these things purely on luck.)

    Congrats!!!! I was crossing my fingers for you!!!

    I just had my 1st interview today and spent the weekend trying to prepare for it. Then I've spent a few hours working on the application for this same school district. Luckily, there are 19 elementary schools in this district, so I only have to go through this process once!

    But, there are 2 more school districts that I'll start applying to this week. Do most of you send your applications via email to the Principals? Or do you send a packet in the mail? Just curious.

    Good luck with your job search! Sheri

    My test scores came from the TExES website. They send you an email letting you know your scores are ready. My computer was being super slow so it was so nerve racking waiting for the file to open.

    Good luck!
