It’s important to recognize that you cannot pass the overall exam without passing the Mathematics (807) section.

With so much at stake, it’s crucial to understand the scoring system for this exam. If you know what it takes to pass, you’ll be able to prepare more effectively.

To give you a leg up, this article will cover all you need to know about TExES Math (807) exam scoring.

## How the Exam is Scored

The TExES Core Subjects 4-8: Mathematics exam is scored by taking the sum of your correct answers and converting this into a scaled score that takes test difficulty into account.

There is no penalty for incorrect answers on this exam.

## Passing Score

To pass the TExES Core Subjects 4-8: Mathematics (807) exam, you must receive a scaled score of at least 240.

## When Will You Get Your Score Report

Your TExES Core Subjects 4-8 (211) score will be posted to your Pearson account after 10 p.m. (CT) on the report date for your exam. This should fall within seven days of your test date. You will also receive your TExES score via email if you selected that option at registration. View the score report dates on the TExES website to find out when to expect your scores.

Your TExES Core Subjects 4-8 score report will show your Total Test Performance as well as your Performance by Domain and Competency. The Total Test Performance section states whether you passed and provides your overall scaled score.

The second section shows how you performed on each subtest. If you didn’t pass the Core Subjects exam overall, this is where you should look to determine if you passed the TExES 4-8: Mathematics (807) section. If you passed this section with a reasonably high score, that’s good news. It means the Math (807) exam probably isn’t where you need to focus as you study for a retake. (To help you assess your performance: 240 is the minimum passing score and 300 is the highest possible score.)

If you did not pass the Math (807) exam, the score report will also allow you to see how you did on each competency. However, be cautious about putting too much stock in this information. Each competency accounts for a very small number of questions, making it hard to draw firm conclusions about your performance. If you’ll be retaking the Math exam, it’s wise to study broadly.

Retaking the Exam

If you don’t pass the TExES Core Subjects 4-8 exam on your first try, you are allowed up to four retakes. You must wait 30 days between each attempt.

If you failed the TExES Mathematics (807) test but passed the three other sections of the Core Subjects 4-8 (211) exam, you are allowed to retake the Math (807) test as a standalone exam. If you failed more than one subtest, however, you will have to take the whole Core Subjects exam again.

Conclusion:

TExES Core Subjects 4-8: Mathematics (807) exam scores are key to becoming certified in core subjects. Understanding how this test is scored and what is required to pass should help you prepare more effectively, maximizing your chances of success.

If you don’t pass the TExES Mathematics (807) exam on your first try, remember to take advantage of the detailed performance breakdown on your score report. It may provide helpful insights.

Even if your first try was unsuccessful, you should feel confident that you can pass the TExES Core Subjects 4-8: Math exam. With diligent study and a clear understanding of the test, you’ll be well prepared for your next attempt.
