    Grade 6  Reading and Math

    Grade 7 Reading, Math, and Writing

    Grade 8 Reading, Math*, Science, and Social Studies

    Grade 8 Algebra I EOC* (Students not scoring at approaching grade level will retake the Algebra I EOC in high school until they reach Level II - it does not impact their credit for the course.)

    Students in 8th grade taking Geometry will be required to take the 8th Grade  Math STAAR Test.  
     
     
     

    Student Performance:

    Once students have taken a STAAR assessment they will receive a score indicating their performance. The three performance levels listed below are all passing levels. They are designed to tell you at what level your child is passing.  If you child did not pass it will state that they did not achieve approaching grade level. 

    • Masters Grade Level 
    • Meets Grade Level
    • Approaches Grade Level
     

    Time Limits:

    Currently all STAAR tests are scheduled for a 4 hour window of testing. We will update this information if anything changes for the 2017-2018 school year. As of the start of school no announcements have been made. Below is the current information that was released by TEA:
