The Texas Examinations for Master Teachers or TExMaT is administered by the Texas State Board for the Educator Certification or SBEC and Educational Testing Service or ETS. It measures the aptitude and mastery on the specific subject matter of potential teachers. The test is given to potential teachers who need to earn a teaching certification and have at least three years of teaching experience. TExMaT test is consists of 4 testing examinations: the paper-based examinations, Master Mathematics Teacher or MMT, Master Reading Teacher or MRT and the Master Science Teacher or MST and the computer-based examination, Master Technology Teacher or MMT, which is a computer-based examination and is taken separately. The examinations contain a mixture of multiple choices and constructed-response questions. Learn more about the TExMaT examinations now!
Being able to discriminate the members of one's own species is also of fundamental importance for reproductive success. Such discrimination can be based on a number of factors. However, this important type of learning only takes place in a very limited period of time. This kind of learning is called imprinting ,  and was a second important finding of Lorenz. Lorenz observed that the young of birds such as geese and chickens followed their mothers spontaneously from almost the first day after they were hatched, and he discovered that this response could be imitated by an arbitrary stimulus if the eggs were incubated artificially and the stimulus were presented during a critical period that continued for a few days after hatching.
