ASU Math Students Stay Perfect on TExES

February 05, 2013

For the 16th straight year, Angelo State University students have maintained a 100 percent passing rate on the Texas Examination of Educator Standards (TExES) teacher certification test for secondary mathematics.

Eight ASU students took the TExES in January, and their average score of 279 out of 300 is the highest average ever posted by an ASU class.  It is also well above last year’s state average score of 227.  The perfect passing rate streak began in 1998 and since then, all 158 of the ASU students who have taken the exam after completing the mathematics program have passed.

Ellen Moreland, senior mathematics instructor, teaches the capstone course that the students must complete as a final preparation for the TExES.

“The fact that all of our students continue to pass the Mathematics TExES with scores that are so much higher than the state average  shows that the ASU mathematics program is an excellent program that gives our students the background they need to be successful in their future careers,” she said.

ASU students passing the secondary mathematics test this year to keep the streak alive were Eloy Acevedo, Laura Aguilar, Emily Booth, Lauren Couch, Debra Ohl, Lacy Osborne, Aaron Perkins and Katy Williams.
