Registration for the July exit level tests opens April 28, 2014, and ends May 23, 2014, at 5:00 PM (CT).  Examinees can continue to register at a participating campus on the day of testing, if the campus can accommodate them.  A list or participating campuses can be found at http://www.TexasAssessment.com/oosTestSites.
