Dear BISD Families,
Please see the below update from the Texas Education Agency.
The purpose of this communication is to inform Texas public school districts and open-enrollment charter schools of an adjustment to the release date of the May 2022 State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR®) grades 3–8 student results in the family and analytic portals. As you know, our preliminary plan was to make the data available Friday, June 24.
Due to the impact of COVID-19, the Texas Education Agency (TEA) is running additional analyses on the data as part of an enhanced due diligence process. Results are now tentatively scheduled to be available next week in the family and analytic portals. TEA will provide another update on the timing of the data release as soon as possible.
Texas Education Agency
In Spring of 2012, the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) replaced the Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (TAKS). The STAAR program includes annual assessments for grades 3–8 in reading and mathematics; assessments in writing at grades 4 and 7; in science at grades 5 and 8; and in social studies at grade 8; and end-of-course assessments (EOCs) for English I, English II, Algebra I, Biology and U.S History. The Texas Education Agency posts resources on their website to provide opportunities for familiarization of the design and format of the STAAR program. These resources are found at Texas Education Agency.
Graduation Testing Requirements
Students who began the 9th grade for the first time in 2011-2012 or later must take the STAAR End-of-Course exams in English I, English II, Algebra, Biology, and U.S. History and pass them in order to graduate.
If you have any questions regarding STAAR or EOC testing, please contact the Assessment and Accountability office at 817-245-1068.
