The State Board of Educator Certification (SBEC) offers a G/T Supplemental TExES exam
. Teachers who pass the exam receive a Gifted and Talented Certification. This certification is not
required by the state of Texas for teachers of the gifted. Teachers who take this test currently do so on a voluntary basis. The Gifted and Talented Supplemental Certification is an optional certification that educators may hold in addition to
the state requirements of 30 foundational G/T professional development hours and 6-hour yearly G/T update.
What is on the G/T Supplemental test?
The content on the G/T Supplemental test is derived from the G/T standards. Those standards are listed on the SBEC website under the Standards and Testing link. The test is a multiple choice test. Also on the SBEC website is a study guide
with sample questions.
