TELPAS Online Training

Access to the Texas Training Center Website, used to deliver TELPAS online training courses, will be permanently shut down on October 16, 2015. After October 16th all training histories will be purged.

Before the end date, we are asking that all current teachers take inventory of any completed training coursework and certificates of completion. This is especially important for returning raters, without the documentation you will need to repeat the online basic training course again this spring.

Listed below is the link to access the Texas Training Center.

Texas Training Center access: :


The students who qualify for Tier II intervention based on MAP have been uploaded into AMCanywhere and the system is ready for teachers to use. This upload is based on the most recent MAP testing.

The login process for teachers has changed. For teacher accounts we are using the Employee ID number for both the teacher ID and password. (Your login is still firstname.lastname for teacher ID). This document can be helpful in making decisions about where to begin or to continue testing your students.
