As you may already know, students participated in the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR)/End of Course (EOC) exams this past spring. Federal and state laws require that all students participate in summative assessments in grades 3-8 and in specific high school courses. Your child's STAAR score provides you with the assurance that he/she is prepared to enter the next grade level through the student's mastery of the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) for a given course and determines college and career readiness at the high school level. The results also provide educators and administrators with uniform information about where to focus resources and instruction to meet the needs of each student, especially in the core subjects being taught for the following school year.
This year, the STAAR/EOC was redesigned to better align with classroom instruction and to allow students to better demonstrate their learning. Due to the redesign, the Texas Education Agency delayed reporting of final test results for the spring STAAR.
For students who participated in STAAR for grades 3-8: April and May 2023 STAAR results are currently available via the state's online Family Portal.
For students who participated in STAAR EOC English I, English II, Algebra I, Biology, and/or U.S. History: April, May and June 2023 STAAR EOC complete and final results are currently available via the state's online Family Portal.
For Emergent Bilingual students (English Language Learners): TELPAS results are currently available via the state's online Family Portal.
