STAAR & EOC

State of Texas Assessment of Academic Readiness (STAAR)

Grades 3–8


In addition to routine tests and other measures of achievement, students at certain grade levels will take state-mandated assessments, such as the STAAR, in the following subjects:


      Mathematics, annually in grades 3–8
      Reading, annually in grades 3-8
      Writing, including spelling and grammar, in grades 4 and 7
      Science in grades 5 and 8
      Social studies in grade 8

 

All students are required to attend STAAR and EOC testing on the date set by the state and school.  Testing sites will be arranged within 150 miles of each student. 

End of Course

Beginning with ninth graders in the 2011-2012 school year, end-of-course (EOC) assessments will be administered for the following courses:


      Algebra I
      English I, English II
      Biology
      United States History


Satisfactory performance on the applicable assessments will be required for graduation and will also affect the plan under which the student may graduate.


There are three testing windows during the year in which a student may take an EOC assessment, which will occur during the fall, spring, and summer months. 


In each content area (English language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies) a student must achieve a cumulative score.  To determine whether the student meets the cumulative score, the student’s EOC assessment scores in each content area will be added together.  If the student’s total score on the assessments within the content area is not equal to or greater than the cumulative score set by TEA, the student may retake any of the assessments in that content area until the student achieves the cumulative score.  A student who does not achieve the minimum required score on any individual assessment will be required to retake that assessment. A student may choose to retake an EOC assessment in situations other than those listed above as well.

 

All students are required to attend STAAR and EOC testing on the date set by the state and school. Testing sites will be arranged within 150 miles of each student.
