### Computer-Adaptive Testing (CAT)

The TExES Mathematics 4-8 exam is a computer-adaptive test. Basically, this means that the questions will become harder or easier as you go through the exam, based on how well you’re answering the questions.

For example, say you answered the first question correctly. The first question is of medium difficulty, so the next question will be slightly harder. Then, let’s say you answered the second question incorrectly. The next question would then be a medium question.

## How to Register

When you submit your registration, you’ll need to pay the $116 testing fee.

## Exam Scores

The test is scored using a scaled scoring method. Here’s how it works:

**raw score**will be converted to a

**scaled score**. This scaled score will range somewhere between 100 and 300.

You will need a score of 240 to pass the test.

The reason your raw score is converted to a scaled score is because everyone who takes the test is given a slightly different set of questions. Since everyone has a different arrangement of questions, and because some questions are harder than others, converting your raw score to a scaled score ensures a more even playing field.
