TExES Pedagogy and Professional Responsibilities Tests & The Kingdom of Heaven?

What on Earth are the TExES PPR tests and why is Texas spelled wrong?! Do you have certified teachers in your life? I do.  My parents, sister, and brother-in-law have dedicated their lives to serving children and they couldn’t do it until they pass this test. Even knowing that I still couldn’t define the TExES PPR tests. Well, if Dr. Nancy Hadley was not in my life, I promise I wouldn’t understand what it meant either.

TExes PPR Tests

Having been a small part of establishing a new private school recently I have an even greater appreciation of those who serve as teachers and administrators.

There’s so much to this arena of life I knew nothing about. Dr. Nancy Hadley is not only brilliant, but she is kind and loves Jesus very much. She and another GPC author, Dr. Marilyn Eisenwine have written an interactive study guide to help aspiring educators pass this test and get on with the business of empowering the next generation.

For those of you who like me have no idea what the test is about, here ya go: the definition of one of the TExES PPR Tests straight from the official online PDF:

Texas Examinations of Educator StandardsTM (TExESTM) Pedagogy and Professional Responsibilities (PPR) EC–12 (160)


The purpose of the TExESTM Pedagogy and Professional Responsibilities (PPR) EC−12 test is to measure the requisite knowledge and skills that an entry-level educator in this field in Texas public schools must possess. The test is a requirement for candidates seeking a PPR EC−12 certificate.

Test Characteristics

Number of items: 100 multiple-choice questions. Typically, 90 multiple-choice questions are scored and 10 multiple-choice questions are used for pilot-testing purposes and do not contribute to the examinee’s score.

Score Scale: The PPR EC−12 test is scored on a 100-300 scale, with a passing score of 240.


Of course, we would love for you to purchase this study guide or share this post with someone you love who will take the tests soon. But, more than that, I thought this would be a great opportunity to emphasize a few bullet points.


  1. Teachers are counted in the Bible as a leadership gift of Christ to The Church and that’s no small thing.

  2. The Kingdom is not contained within the walls of The Church.

  3. The next generation needs teachers who are appreciated and empowered to flow in the anointing of Jesus Christ.

  4. Teachers & Administrators, thank you for all you do to advance The Kingdom one letter, page, or research paper at a time.
