What Is the PPR Exam?
During your first Internship Year teaching in the classroom, all candidates are required to take the Pedagogy and Professional Responsibilities (PPR) exam in order to become fully certified and receive their Standard Certificate. This exam does not test your knowledge in a particular content area, but rather addresses the theory of various aspects of teaching and what a first-year teacher should know. While it’s important to note that the Texas Education Agency allows candidates only five attempts to pass the exam, Texas Teachers has prepared a comprehensive Test Preparation course for you to take in Canvas. Additionally, we have compiled a comprehensive list of study resources.
